ABOUT ARMAND HOXHOLLI:
I am originally from Albania where I played soccer for my town club team up to U19, and I was the starting Center Back and Captain. While there, I lead the team in 3 consecutive league championships.
After playing, I became the Assistant Coach and then Head Coach for a total of 5 years with the same club. Under my leadership, the club won 2 additional league championships.
My passion for soccer doesn’t end with coaching, but I also love to referee the sport. I am currently a certified USSF State Referee and have refereed many high- level competitive games.
Growing up in Albania, soccer was everything from playing to watching. My all-time favorite player is Pele. He is an inspiration to the game and in my opinion revolutionized the sport. In the words of Pele: “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
