 The love all started back in Trinidad, where I was born and raised for 19 years. I have played in all the top flight leagues Caribbean football has to offer. I made my professional debut with Mapau SC of Trinidad at the age of 17. Later on, I opted out of the professional scene to pursue a college career in the USA, becoming a standout player at KCC and Aurora University.

After my time as a player, I found a love for developing young players with local travel soccer club Southland FC Strikers. Two years later, I was appointed as a club director and an assistant coaching position at Kankakee Community College.

During this time, I began pursuing individualized training and redefining passion for teaching the game. In 2016, I officially launched Cruz Coaching and started working with hundreds of players, from amateurs to professionals. 

Today, I continue to grow my coaching style and looking forward to the future everyday through hard work and prosperity
