Meet our team
Coach Cory started College Soccer Pathway because, after coaching Club and College soccer for 20 years, found there was a fundamental flaw in educating and preparing players on all facets of the recruitment process. During that time, he directly coached, trained or counseled over 100 kids who went on to play at the collegiate or professional level.
His goal for CS Pathway is to provide not only information, but exclusive features and programs, as well as a personalized approach where client servicing and support that caters to the individual...not the masses. And that was his goal in building one of the most extensive, service based teams in the country.
"I have always believed that the best way for a leader and business to succeed is surround yourself with people smarter and more qualified than you are. So while I was completely engulfed in the needs of every player in the past, I have learned that there are so many people that can help during this process to make the experience ever better. I tried to build our team based on knowing someone for 20 years, having coached them, or found common ground through relationship or reputation. They all have the same desire to help the next generation of athletes as I do. So that's where we started and that's the only way we will qualify new team members in the future." Founder-CS Pathway

Cory was the main reason I moved clubs. I heard of him through a friend and I was so impressed with how she spoke so highly of him. She went off committing to a big D1 school and I knew Cory could get me there as well. Cory was so helpful and has had a huge effect on my skill level this past year...Cory cared more about my life than any other coach I’ve had.”
