“Jesse was a great captain for the University of Evansville, and was well respected by his teammates and coaches. His work-ethic and commitment to winning as a player both on and off the field was infectious.”

“Jesse will be the perfect leader  and head coach of the inaugural Evansville Legends FC squad.  His playing and coaching experience are outstanding and his leadership skills and charisma will undoubtedly forge the culture that honors the past but looks forward to a bright future for this club”.

 

“Jesse has a wealth of experience coaching at all levels and as been an important member of our staff at the University of Evansville prior to the pandemic.  Jesse served as captain for us at UE and transitioned to our coaching staff because of his leadership qualities and his willingness to grind at everything he does.  He has used the knowledge from his degree at UE to become one of the most well respected personal trainers in the tristate area.   This knowledge along with his soccer IQ has allowed him to work with and develop some of the best players in the area.  This will be a great experience for Jesse and Legends FC have one of best up and coming coaches in the area leading their team and the development of the players in our area.“
