Background

Sheeley grew up playing various sports in Kansas City. He started focusing on soccer in high school and attended the MBU Soccer Ministry Team clinics in 2012 in Kansas City. Sheeley played several high school tournament at MBU with his high school team, and through those experiences, he decided to attend MBU and play under Coach Jeff Pill.

Sheeley says this: "The best thing I have in my coaching 'tool belt' is having played for Coach Pill for four years and coaching under him in several clinics and camps. Learning from sucha a top-class coach teaches you the basics of the game better than the average person by the exposure to high-quality coaching. I often find myself asking what Coach Pill would do for a session.

"Although head coaching is a new experience for me, I feel very supported by a team of coaches at MBU and by my history with the program. To me, this is simply continuing a program's culture, which is a great place to be."
