Kevin Eberhard

Head Coach

I started playing club soccer in Austria when I was 5 years old. My dad had been a semi-professional soccer player and coach in various leagues in Austria, and he passed on his enthusiasm for soccer to me. My first club was in my hometown of Proleb, which is about 45 minutes north of Graz. In my early years, I played as a striker and I remember winning trophies for most goals scored. As a teenager, I transferred to a more competitive youth club that was affiliated with the then-second league team of DSV Leoben. In U13 and U15, we regularly played the youth teams of Austria's biggest soccer clubs such as Sturm Graz and GAK. My team was particularly good at Futsal, which was newly introduced at the time, and we won a few state championships. At the age of 15, I made it into the second team of DSV Leoben and regularly started playing as a winger against adults alongside professional soccer players from the first team. While being on the verge of making the first team, the club went bankrupt, was relegated, and had to quit professional soccer. That's when I decided that soccer would only be a hobby for me, and I went on to study at the University of Graz.

While studying, I still played soccer at various clubs - then as a central midfields - such as my hometown club FC Proleb as well as SK Werndorf and SV Strass, where I was fortunate enoug to make many new friends and earn some money. Here in the US, I found a group of guys to play soccer with and we play in MRSL all around the Twin Cities. I am really looking forward to passing on my enthusiasm and experience in soccer to TCGIS students this year!
