Marino’s words: “My desire is to be to children what my coaches were to me. I want to be a teacher, a mentor and a friend. I’m demanding of my players because I’m driven to see them improve week to week and season to season. It is not enough to be a good soccer coach, but I also must be a reliable mentor to provide youth with a positive environment and the encouragement to achieve their life goals. Soccer is my passion, and I want to instill that same drive in my players.”
