Will Seidman

Currently - Yale University

QUESTION FOR SEIDMAN: Biggest soccer influences and why? My club soccer coach Winston Buddle. He’s been my coach since seventh grade, and he has taught me how to play and understand the game at a higher level. Coach Winston incorporated not only his own professional experiences but those of his son Edson (US National/World Cup, LA Galaxy player) on and off the pitch when teaching our team over the years. When Winston first started coaching me, I was relatively good technically, but he developed my tactical game and understanding of the game as a whole and has turned me into the player I am today.
