For over 25 years, Andrew Elsoffer has been coaching soccer in his community of Cleveland, Ohio. As a young man, Andrew was a three letterman athlete, holding positions on his school's soccer, baseball, and hockey teams. Later, he would play for the University of Michigan, semi-professionally for the Ann Arbor Cannon Club, and professionally for the Detroit Kickers.
Though Andrew's time playing soccer may be over, he has never left the sport completely behind. He has held coaching positions on a number of community and club teams. To him, coaching gives him the greatest chance of making a positive impact on the young athletes in his community. When he's not coaching, Andrew is a trusted investment advisor and avid outdoorsman.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
