Meet Head Coach Teddy Vickers
Teddy’s passion for soccer began in his childhood, playing with friends of all ages in the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. After moving to Texas, Teddy was chosen to train with the Houston Dynamo Youth Academy and participated in an elite summer program with the Houston Texans SC in Europe where he was selected as MVP during multiple games in Spain and England.
Teddy began his collegiate soccer career as an attacking midfielder at Carson-Newman University, participating in their conference-winning season which won them a place in the NCAA division finals. He moved to Austin to play with the Concordia University Tornados during their historic first winning season in school history.
Teddy has been coaching soccer since middle school, volunteering with the local youth leagues as a young boy and more recently coaching seven seasons with Austin’s Lonestar Soccer League. His proudest moment as a coach was watching his under-10 team win the Lonestar Spring Shootout in 2017.
