Godwin Named Louisiana Coach Of The Year.
Godwin has been working with Louisiana players and coaches since the early 90′s and has a true passion for the game. He has been involved in some form or other with the game of soccer since becoming a youth player in the 1940′s in England. His playing career lasted a very long time and took him to such great heights in the English Cups against Wimbledon and other English teams.
After a very impressive playing career he moved into coaching where he excelled as developer of all soccer players no matter what their level of play or gender. He was awarded the British Empire Medal by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 2nd in 1978 for his service in the field of soccer.
After coming to the United States in 1992 He transformed a struggling soccer program in Alexandria, LA., into today’s Crossroads Soccer Association (now 1300 players) and has gone on to share his coaching knowledge with youth soccer coaches and players around Louisiana and the United States.
Godwin will be presented the state COY award at the Louisiana Soccer Association’s winter Annual General Meeting on January 7, at the Holiday Inn South in Baton Rouge.
