Extras!

Bo is a Serbian native and he grew up playing soccer over there. In outdoor soccer, he plays forward where in indoor he plays a defender. He knows how hard it is to get to a professional level and that is why he decided to start coaching to try and help others using his own personal experience and knowledge of the game. There are a lot of obstacles to face to get to the top and the only way to get there is to work hard every day and to stay determined and focused on bettering themselves. Like one of his coaches said in the past, 10 percent is talent and 90 percent is hard work.
