National Soccer Coaches Association
convention in St. Louis
Some of the highlights included the national draft for both the men's and women's professional soccer leagues. Additionally there were the awards banquets for the high-school and college All-American selections.
We had a good time confusing people who met us for the first time. Of the thousands in attendance, I think half of them knew my brother. While I had many coming up to me and talking to me, thinking they were talking to 'Coach' Jack Schenkel, we managed to keep them laughing at themselves when we presented ourselves together.
And a good time was had by all. I now know a little about a lot of different topics [combinations, 4-4-2, 3-4-2-1 and other formations, backs and forwards and wings and strikers and keepers, set-plays, counters, corner kicks, crossing, support, dribbling, heading, add-time, touches, etc.].
Always good to be home.
