As a young boy, Leo Gibson dreamt and prayed about becoming a professional soccer player. He played professional soccer in his home country, Liberia/West Africa. A rare talent, Leo was drafted at the early age of seventeen. Leo showed incredible talent and discipline.
When civil war destroyed his country and ultimately his dream, Leo was not deterred. He instead drew inspiration from his faith and belief that Jesus would grant him his heart’s desire.
Leo found refuge in the United States in 2002. It was at this time he became dedicated to his craft, developing a strict training schedule and focusing on his studies. During this time Leo’s level of skill improved dramatically and he began his rewarding career as a professional soccer player in the United States. Leo is a US Soccer Federation B License coach.
