Flying planes by day, flying saves by night, kid at heart and goalkeeper by choice.
I was born and raised in the Netherlands, and have been playing 'real football" since I was old enough to identify a ball.
Currently residing in Maryland, I hold USSF “D” and NSCAA “National” Goalkeeping coaching licenses, and have been an Assistant / Goalkeeping Coach at the High School, Club and ODP level since 1999.
When not playing, talking, writing or thinking about football and goalkeeping, I remind airline passengers to keep their seatbelts comfortably fastened around them, in my day job as a pilot for a major US airline.
I can be reached at jdevicq at icloud dot com. Please note that I do not do private training or camps
