The 2017 season will be my second season coaching at SLP. I thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 season and cannot wait to get going again this year. I have been overwhelmed by the parent support and the amazing group of kids we had, and look forward to the much of the same this season. I have lived in SLP since 1986, outside of my college years in Duluth. I graduated from SLP in 1998 and regretfully admit I lettered in tennis, not golf. Since then I have invested an exorbitant amount time and money in golf (my wife's words, not mine). As a self taught golfer, and neurotic critic of my own game, I have loved sharing my passion for and knowledge of the game with these amazing kids. 

When not golfing you may possibly find me plowing or paving your streets as I have been wasting my Communications degree from The College of Saint Scholastica working Street Maintenance for the City of SLP for the past 12 years. When I am not working or golfing, I am more than likely hanging out with my wife Blair and four year old daughter Keira. Unfortunately, Keira will be attending Hopkins schools as I didn't have the foresight to look at school district boundary lines when I purchased my SLP home nearly 9 years ago. 

I look forward to coaching your kids and I promise to treat them with the same care and respect that I treat my own daughter. I want this to be a program kids and families are proud to be involved in and will exhaust every resource I can to make that happen for every single one of you.

Thank you for being a part of this program!

Hello.  I have 17 years of service teaching Developmental Adaptive Physical Education (DAPE) in the St. Louis Park School District.  In addition, I met my wife, Carrie of 15 years in the school district, my 2 children Lucas whose 10 and Veronica whose 8 both attend elementary school in the district.  I have numerous years of coaching experience in the district which includes 10 years of Varsity Football, 5 years of Varsity Girls Fastpitch, 3 years of 9th grade basketball, 2 years of 9th grade baseball, and 3 years of JV golf.  I've served as our districts Union President for 4 years, and been part of 3 negotiated contracts.  I grew up playing golf with my Dads side of the family.  My Dad won the Minnesota State High School Individual Golf Championship as a Sophomore in 1963 out of Albert Lea High School I believe. My strengths are course management and program organization.  I believe everyone should have an opportunity to play a game that offers opportunities to become a well rounded person both on and off the course. You have no one to blame in golf, therefore no excuses.  You hit it there!

I am extremely excited to join Coach Okey’s staff and look forward to a great season!
 
I am currently employed by the City of St. Louis Park, previously worked for SLP Schools, and have 10+ years of coaching experience, most recently, Head Coach of SLP Girls Varsity Hockey.
 
Most of my time is spent with my wife and soon to be 2 year old son, Ray. This is where I’d like to add “away from my family, my time is spent on the golf course”, however, being a dad has completely consumed my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. This part-time opportunity is the perfect chance for me to get back into coaching and a game that I love.
