Hello & Welcome to TeamB4Self.com

My name is Michael Enz and I am your host.

Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to visit with me today.

As my website continues to be a “work in progress” it will undergo periodic changes for updates and additional information from time to time so please visit often.

I hope you find this site both informative and enjoyable.

In short, the site title reflects the values I have been taught and the coaching I have received throughout my lifetime.  It also provides insight on lessons I have learned and what I sincerely believe.

          “Unselfish commitment and true player dedication are the foundation of a successful Team”.


8-17-2016
 – Bluefield College Rams battle the NCAA Division 1 University of South Carolina Spartans to 0-0 tie in a hard fought, well played pre-season game on the road.
 

————————————————————————————————————————————

It is my intent and desire, to play college soccer in a program where I can make a positive difference and be a contributing factor as I continue my education.  If my skill set, attributes and background are a good fit for the Coaches, Team and School, I am confident that mutual positive results will be achieved.

Soccer players are no different than that which has been carefully sculpted over time.  Some, are molded from clay and others have been chiseled from stone.

Concealed in stone,
      the competitor has always been there.
     Through hard work, time and patience,
             the character of the  solid athlete within will eventually be revealed!

 

 This athleteruns for those who cannot walk and signs for those who cannot speak!
