Quotes from former players:

"Brian is the most influential trainer that I've had. He taught me techniques and skills, at a young age, that are still the foundation of my game at the professional level" -- Chris Rolfe, Forward, Aalborg (Danish Superliga) / US Men's National Team

"Brian has always impressed me with not only his passion for sharing the game of soccer, but also his knowledge of the game. The fact that BK played the game at a high level lends credibility to all of his lessons. His preparation for sessions shows his commitment to each team and individual he trains. BK is an elite coach who demands constant growth and sincerely enjoys watching it happen. I'm proud to call Brian Kohen a mentor." -- Kevin Hartman, Goalkeeper, FC Dallas
