For 42 years, Dave Schmitt has been involved in soccer and after four years as the junior varsity coach, he will be the varsity coach for the 2011 soccer season, taking over for Clay Mattingly who stepped down to spend more time with his family.
“Soccer has been a part of me ever since I could walk,” he said. “My parents are from Germany and I have known it since I was a baby. I am looking forward to coaching my son, Forrest. My dad was my first coach and now it is me coaching mine and it is a cool feeling.”
