My name is Montana and I was born in Dallas, TX, but grew up in Tampico, Mexico until the age of 17. Living in Mexico I naturally played soccer. I was on the select team from 12-14 years old representing my state (Tamaulipas) and attended two national championships. Soccer was my life. While attending the American School of Tampico I pursued a professional career in soccer. At the age of 15, I played in Atletico Altamira Quarta Division (4th division) were I ascended to the same team’s 3rd division squad.
I played for the Atletico Altamira team until I came to the United States to finish high school (high school in Mexico only lasts three years). I attended Prince of Peace Christian School, and during the time I played for their soccer team we won one State Championship and made it to quarter finals in my senior year. While playing for Prince of Peace I was also on the 3rd division FC Dallas select club team.
After finishing high school I was recruited to play in Liege, Belgium for Royal Racing Montagnee (RRM), a team that was formerly a contender in the UEFA Cup. Playing in Belgium, France, Holland, and Germany greatly developed my skills and taught me how to play against players twice my size. I played at RRM for a year and then returned to Tampico at the end of summer.
I believe in technical training as a core development of any soccer player. Passing and sharing the ball is something that can be taught once skills have been developed. Skill on the other hand is something that takes more time and effort to hone. While I consider technical training to be essential, I am also aware of the necessity of conditioning and physical endurance. I am open to teach whatever skills and/or conditioning that students may need. I do well around kids and have great communication skills with younger athletes.
