FIRST GUEST COACHES:

April 9, 2021
Ryan Williams just retired from his professional playing career after playing with New Mexico United of the USL Championship. Ryan is originally from Hawaii and played in the US Development Academy in Colorado before becoming an NAIA All-American at John Brown University. He was the MVP of the PDL National Championship match after scoring the game-winner for the Charlotte Eagles in the final.

Santiago Vanegas came to Northwest Arkansas from Colombia by way of an international student program in Maryland, where he was the National Player of the Year in the NACA. Coach Santi has played at the semi-professional level as a member of the Charlotte Eagles of USL-2 and served as a captain at Northwest Arkansas's own Ozark FC of the NPSL. Santi is an EXPLOSIVE player with a damaging strike with his left foot. Can you keep up with him when he gets on the run?

Collin Smith spent four years as the UNQUESTIONED ENGINE of the John Brown University midfield and has played multiple seasons with Charlotte Eagles in USL-2. Coach Collin hails from Houston, Texas, and is in town for this week only!! Coach Collin can do it all on the field, but if you have ever been looking for someone to use as a measuring stick for what a "good teammate" looks like, Coach Collin is your man. Nobody can create a goal for a teammate then celebrate their teammate's success as well as Coach Collin (with apologies to Sadio Mane, who is a close second).
