Bio

Bio

A native of Massachusetts, Darren has been playing, coaching, and refereeing soccer since he was 8 years old. He served 20 years in the U.S. Army before retiring from the military in 2012. During his 20 years of service, when he wasn't maneuvering tanks across the training area or mentoring aspiring young officers, he could be found coaching the local youth soccer teams--usually the teams his two sons were playing on. When he moved to the Austin area in late 2017 he immediately began looking for coaching opportunities and found Lonestar. Six months later it became a family affair when his youngest son enrolled at St. Edward's University and became an assistant coach and referee with the club.
