Coach Block begins his second year as the head coach of the men’s soccer team. During his first season, 2018, he guided the Eagles to both regular season and tournament championships in the Midwest Christian College Conference.
He has 15 years of combined experience as a head coach at the club and high school varsity level, leading his high school teams in back-to-back conference championships before coming to Emmaus in 2018.
Developing players physically and spiritually through the game of soccer is his passion. His coaching philosophy is simple: Honor the Lord in everything you do; Strive to get better every day; Play with poise and confidence; Put other people’s needs ahead of your own.
Coach Block lives in Dubuque with his wife, Barb, of 35 years and his son, Jared, who is also a soccer player. His daughter, Roanna, is a 2016 graduate of Emmaus who now lives in Madison, Wisconsin with her Emmaus graduate husband, George Heathcote III.
