In the 2nd half

Tim and Brodee check in with Memphis 901 FC Head Coach Tim Mulqueen.

Last week the USL Championship announced a return to play on or around July 11th.  Other details of the restart are to be determined, so the guys talked to “Mulch” about everything to this point.

Mulqueen discussed the challenges of training when they cannot be together even for individual workouts.  As restrictions have lifted, a new challenge awaited Mulqueen: practice while observing social distancing.  Coach explains how Assistant Coach Ben Pirmann and he made it work from past experiences.  He also proudly talks about how the team’s veteran leaders have assisted in maintaining player morale on and off the pitch.

The announcement of the return of soccer, combined with progression to small group training, has Tim Mulqueen more excited than ever.   Coach tells Tim and Brodee about the drills designed specifically to adhere to local health guidelines.  It’s uncharted territory for nearly every coach, but Mulqueen says the players are responding well to training.

While Mulqueen speaks proudly of the skill of his club, he is especially proud of the team’s genuine respect and empathy for others.   He chalks it up to the character of the players and the off-pitch leadership of Tim Howard.

Huge thanks to Memphis 901 FC Head Coach Tim Mulqueen for joining us.  FYI, the Club Store is open online at memphis901fc.com .
