General Comments, Funny Stories, etc.

"If you look up the word “toxic” in Webster’s Dictionary, you’ll come across a picture of David Poggi. This man was by far the worst soccer coach I’ve ever come across, and that includes my youth days playing in the YMCA.
His training sessions were largely a waste of time and very in organized, he constantly sent players mixed messages about whether they would play or why he would place them on the bench. I wouldn’t be surprised if he picked his line ups by drawing names out of a bowl while he was blindfolded.
All of this led to a dysfunctional and toxic environment for the team itself. I had never experienced such a mass exodus of players on a yearly basis as a crop of players decided it wasn’t worth the time to play for him and quit.
This is all on top of a petition that the players would sign every year and send to the Athletic director calling for Coach Poggi to be fired..
I would encourage all people looking to hire coaches in the future to reach out to former players to get a better idea of what type of coach and person you are really bringing into your school." - 3/1/2020
