Coach Isaac

Isaac was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, where he played for numerous clubs around the state as a central midfielder. At 14, Isaac was chosen for the Georgia Olympic Development team that would play in the National Championships in Phoenix, AZ. From this, he was selected to the Southeast Region team, leading to a national residency camp invitation. Among the other clubs he played with, they allowed him to compete in a plethora of tournaments around the globe, including the Copa Catalunya tournament in Barcelona and the historic Keele Cup, the largest international tournament in Great Britain—where his team would go on to win. Isaac drew the eye of coaches at Queens University of Charlotte, where he would attend from 2013-2017. In that time, he won two conference tournament championships and one regular season championship. Used primarily as a box-to-box midfielder and winger, Isaac finished at Queens with 11 goals and 8 assists—with 4 of those being game winning conversions. After graduating, Isaac began his professional career in Iceland after getting noticed at a combine in Connecticut. This sparked ensuing seasons in NISA, USL2,  Sweden and most recently, Belgium. Of note in Sweden, he started every game en route to his team winning the division and achieving promotion.

These experiences have aided in Isaac’s view of the game in a multi-faceted way at a global level. The confluence of trials and tribulations have been invaluable to his mentality and coaching style. He has spent a large portion of his playing career imparting what he’s learned to local youth players as a private coach, specifically in Charlotte. Along with training several clients over the years in the community, Isaac coached Carmel Middle School’s boy’s team for two seasons (’16-’17) while attending Queens—one of which they were crowned county champions. Isaac is very passionate when it comes to coaching, and that is displayed in his teaching style. Isaac brings a lot of tenacity and professionalism to the table.
