Five Loaves, Two Fishesa place to expose thoughts, interests and discoveries
Fives Loaves, Two Fishes is my playground. It’s where I test design elements, babble on various subjects that I find interesting, promote my books, those of others I appreciate and simply mess around. If you know me you’ll probably understand, if you don’t know me it doesn’t matter but maybe you’ll find something useful.
This is a project I finally decided to complete. It’s been in the works for a while and one day I made the decision to complete it. That’s an important thing to note and very powerful….make a decision!
Trap – Pass – Move is a short book but took nearly two years for me to complete because I was not dedicated to its completion. I doubted my ‘authority’, was uncertain whether it would be accepted. Well, forget all that, Trap – Pass – Move coaching worked, players and parents accepted it, I accepted it, that’s what matters. Every coach has his own system, or should. Not everyone will agree but perhaps some coach will benefit form that’s inside Trap – Pass – Move and that means some kids may benefit.
It’s to the point, gives practice schedules from u6-u14, explains why, offers data to support the whys and makes since. It’s also cheap so all you volunteer coaches can afford it. Buy a copy here.

I’ve written & published two books, both under different aliases.
I’ve started a number of businesses, mostly operating in the shadows.
This is the only public platform I am me.
The spotlight has never been attractive. I prefer working behind the scenes, that’s where things get done. That’s where the power is. There are benefits to this. There are drawbacks. Such is life.
My main focus in life, right now, is to guide my boys, provide for my family and share what I have learned. Some of it is of value, perhaps much of it is of value.
One thing I learned over the past year, maybe two years, is that I love coaching. Coaching is sharing. It is caring.
My Team taught me this lesson over the past year or so. My soccer players. They are mine, I claim them. I am theirs. I hope they want me.
I’m getting too sappy. Read the Articles. Maybe there’s something worth while that will speak to you.
