Youth Soccer Powerhouse Legends FC and Local Legend Robbie Findley Launch Legends FC Arizona in 2020

PHOENIX - May 23, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

 ​Legends FC is excited to announce the joining together of two great leadership groups that are committed to building the strongest soccer program in Arizona. Through this collaboration, Legends Arizona will field multiple competitive teams, have strong player pools in various age groups and gender, and clearly defined local and National player pathways to achieve their goals.  

Legends Arizona’s main priority is to develop the top age level talent in the Phoenix Metro Area. We pride ourselves in developing excellence in the individual and team performance through a consistent and comprehensive training program.

Legends Arizona strives to provide its players with professional-level training, the best possible playing environments, and to develop and nurture the skills and confidence necessary to play at the sports highest levels. We pride ourselves on the ability to progress the player development and setting them up properly for the next level.

Legends Arizona will start in 2020. It will be led by local legend Robbie Findley (Technical Director).

"I’m proud to be a local product of Arizona Youth Soccer and was lucky enough to have both passionate and talented coaches that cared about my team's future, both on a youth soccer level and personal level. They knew our families, they appreciated the effort we gave to them and that mutual dedication helped develop four professional soccer players from my youth team. 

"Those coaches opened doors for me to have successful collegiate, professional, and USMNT careers both at home and abroad. When I came home to Arizona after playing professional soccer, I had no intention of being involved in the game. I then visited local youth games and fields and saw how the landscape had changed. There appeared to be a lack of focus on the details, a disconnect between players and coaches, and that change appeared to only benefit clubs to sign up more players, not build great players.  

"I decided at that moment that I wanted to give back to the youth and community the same dedication and opportunity that I was given from my coaches and mentors. I want to give youth the opportunity to become legends.

"I’m proud to have joined together with Legends FC in Arizona to provide a throwback to an elite academy club. I'm excited to provide youth the same dedication I was provided on a youth, collegiate, MLS, and National Team level.  

"Joining Legends FC gives us the opportunity to join a first-class organization and provide a top program for Phoenix and the surrounding region. Legends FC Arizona looks forward to building upon our inaugural teams and building the next generation of Legendary Arizona Players," said Robbie Findley, Technical Director of Arizona.

Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

May 29, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

May 29, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

May 29, 2020

ALTENBERG, Germany — Olympic champion David Gleirscher finally got his first World Cup luge victory, leading Austria’s sweep of gold Saturday. Gleirscher finished two runs at historic Altenberg in 1 minute, 48.150 seconds to hold off Italy’s Dominik Fischnaller by about one-quarter of a second. Fischnaller finished in 1:48.383 and Germany’s Felix Loch was third in 1:48.420. Gleirscher becomes the third different Austrian man to win a race this season. He’s 1 for 1 at the Olympics, after being the surprise winner of gold at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games. And he’s now 1 for 59 in World Cup races, getting...

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

May 29, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...
