Undaunted, and at age 60, Joe turned an unpaid intern with the collage of Nebraska's soccer group in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, he was once named the top trainer of the Omaha Nighthawks of the United soccer League, a qualified league teetering on the point of monetary cave in. It was once a dicy proposition, yet one he felt he had to take to end up to his naysayers that he may perhaps trainer a school staff. Failure may suggest the demise of a dream that refused to die.
