FFC has no shortage of talent when it comes to coaching. Grover Gibson, David Shaw, and Jëns Baumer all have years of playing and coaching experience that they are passionate to pass on to their players.
Grover signed his first professional contract after high school with VfB Stuttgart U-18. He continued his career in Germany playing professional soccer for 13 years, playing around 250 games and scoring over 20 goals, before retiring due to a serious eye injury. His last club was Rot-Weiss Ahlen in the 2. Bundesliga, where he played 30 matches and scored six goals. He was also a member of the US National Team U17 and U20s.
David played for West Ham United Youth Teams, Reserve Teams, and Scottish Youth National Teams. While representing these Teams, David earned 6 International Caps, including two against Germany's U18's. David was also selected for camp for the Under 19 European Championships. David's Coaching Qualifications include a UEFA B License, which he earned at 22 years old in England with the English FA. He has since gone on to complete his English FA Youth Modules 1 & 2, and his USSF National Youth License.
