Young Scorpions Head Coach Brings International Pro Soccer Experience to San Antonio

 

Canada native, Alen Marcina, went from playing soccer as a kid growing up in Surrey, British Columbia to becoming head coach of a pro soccer league in San Antonio, Texas.

 

At just 34 years old, Marcina holds the head coaching position for the San Antonio Scorpions. I sat down to talk to him about how his passion for the game allowed him to pursue a professional soccer career playing overseas, representing countries like, New Zealand, Greece, Germany, Denmark and Puerto Rico. 

 

Coach Marcina has a great story that really exemplifies the saying, "Everything happens for a reason."
