I am a local resident living in the Salem Alabama area. I grew up playing AYSO and Club Soccer on the west coast in the 70’s though the late 80’s and continued to play with adult leagues. I am now a Certified USSF Grassroots Referee within the State of Geargia and Alabama. My two boys grew up here in Alabama and played their first two years at the Phenix City Industrial Park way back when. They played with CFC Red Star Elite Select Teams from U12 through the U19. I loved watching their games and now that both boys have retired from Travel Soccer, I have chosen to officiate games to stay involved in the sport.
