ETFC Will Miss Coach Roach
It is with a heavy heart and sadness to share with you that Brian Roach, one of our long standing coaches in the club, has passed away late last week. He has battled with cancer for the last three and a half years. After a short time away from the sidelines after his diagnosis, Brian returned to coaching last summer and he was full of enthusiasm and passion. Brian worked with our U14 girls team Lyon Red this fall and then took on the head coaching job with Sol Red. His dedication and commitment was unprecedented and his passion for the game and the players he coached had no end. We have lost a great colleague, person, friend, coach, and someone who loved the game of soccer. He worked for our club and with our players since the beginning days of Eugene Metro FC over 10 years ago. Even in his absence he never lost touch with the club and its players.
Brian grew up playing soccer in Salem, and he coached at Sheldon HS for several years. He started working for Eugene Metro Futbol Club in May of 2006 and coached a number of boys and girls teams in the club. The 95 Rangers, the 91 Extreme, the 94 Phoenix, 97 Boca Juniors, 96 Azzuri, 03 Ajax, 03 Lyon and 00 Sol. Brian believed that “every youth player has potential, given the proper dedication, desire and coaching resources.” He also worked very hard on team spirit and proved that “a team’s success can be measured not only by competitive strength, but also by the attitudes, accountability, and habits of its player.” Brian stated in his coaching statement in 2006 that his coaching philosophy and “my passion for this, the world’s most beautiful game, that are my greatest assets”. He proved this passion every time he stepped on the pitch.
Over the years, Brian worked with and mentored many of our coaches. I worked alongside Brian when both of us coached the 2003 Ajax boys’ teams. It was a pleasure to work with Brian who always saw the best in his players. Many of his players and families have contacted me over the years and shared their appreciation for Brian’s work, dedication, and commitment. His sarcasm was very humorous and often left us coaches smiling for days. He loved spending time with his family and brought his dad Ron to many practices. He loved fishing and his cat Beaker and his dog Steve. He shared all his passions with both coaches and players.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. He was such a strong presence that he will leave a big void in his absence. We will miss him dearly and I know his players and families will never forget him. The club will work on an appropriate way to remember Brian in the club.
It is a sad day for Eugene Timbers FC and for the soccer community in Eugene.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday April 7, 2017 from 1-3:45pm at Kick City in Springfield.
Rest in peace Brian.
