Sadly, Nate Strain will be leaving us this summer.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Nate during his time with Fremont YSC, and while working as colleagues, I would certainly consider Nate a friend. Nate has all the qualities of what it takes to coach at Fremont. Nate is incredibly humble, empathetic of others, and goes above and beyond what is expected within a coach’s roles and responsibility, he understands the culture of youth soccer and giving back to his community. Nate has been with us at Fremont YSC for over 8 years, an incredible stretch of time, which shows a great level of dedication and commitment.
Before the rumors of Nate taking the Spurs job start to swirl, Nate is moving to Utah, and we wish him the best of luck with his future, and he will always be welcome back.
Nate however does come with his faults by being an Arsenal fan. For that we can forgive him, as they are of no direct rival to any team the rest of us support, as they are forever mid-table mediocrity, lucky not to be in a relegation scrap… until next season anyway.
We wish Nate and his family all the best for their move, and he will always be welcome back to the Fremont YSC family.
