For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. 1 Timothy 4:8-10
Glorifying God is and always will be our first team priority. The Boys Soccer program is a year round sport, with pre-season and post-season training as well as summer league games. We'd love to have you on the field with us!

It is a privilege to serve in the Christian ministry that is Crean Lutheran High School. Academic instruction and coaching from a Biblical perspective allows students to develop their intellectual and athletic abilities while growing in faith and character. I enjoy helping students reach their full potential in all those areas! After practicing law for several years in the secular world, I feel particularly blessed to proclaim Jesus while following my passions of education and soccer.
When I became head coach of the CLHS team, as a relatively new school, we had not yet won a single league game. Since then, we not only enjoyed several consecutive years of CIF playoff berths but won the league title in our last year in the Academy League. Now in the Empire League, we have added a third level (Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Frosh Soph) and are working hard to chase league titles once again.
I am blessed to be married to the beautiful Karen Worthington and even more blessed to serve with her at CLHS. When we're not on campus, you'll likely find us spending time with our two little girls, Stella and Naomi. Here's hoping for a great school year, and more importantly, here's praying that we all steadfastly seek God's plan, hope, and future! Godspeed!
