Brian Quarstad

My name is Brian I have always had a love of soccer since I was 19 and had the fortune to both play and coach in the beautiful game. I live in Minnesota so my main interest lies in the MLS as well as some of the local leagues, though I no longer contribute to this site.. you can still find some of previous posts here
