Goalkeeper Guys – This is Jeff

I am Jeffrey Lageson and I write the Coach’s Corner pieces for GoalkeeperGuys.net and ProstAmerika.com, covering the Seattle Reign FC, USWNT, and often the occasional other match like when WSU plays UW.

To provide a little background I have been a lifelong soccer player, supporter, coach, occasional ref, and soccer writer since 1974.45958_10150253613580311_4129818_n

I began playing goalie in my second year of youth soccer for The Wildebeests. We kicked serious butt.

I mostly played keeper growing up, lettering at Mountlake Terrace High School.

It was a different era back in those days and I played for the club team at WSU.

I began coaching after college, taking the opportunity to coach goalkeepers at North Central High School in Spokane and at my high school alma mater. ¬†From there, I got the opportunity to coach goalkeepers at my college alma mater, returning to Pullman to be a part of the 1994 WSU Women’s Soccer program that made it to the NCAA Sweet 16 and a regular season ending #19 ranking.

Over the years I have continued to coach youth soccer, including my daughter’s team and running summer camps at a local private school.

And yes, I still play when I can.
