Rush Soccer National Technical Director, Arian Hoxha, made a visit to Rush Soccer’s first team, USL pro team Penn FC, in Harrisburg last week. Hoxha conducted a successful 5 day visit to Harrisburg, PA that was multifaceted and laced with Passion & Purpose.

Objective #1: Watch games in person to get a feel for the environment and the level of play first hand.  (3-0 Penn FC Rush win versus the Tampa Bay Rowdies was the game Hoxha was able to watch live at FNB Field on May 4th)

Objective #2: Meet with Head Coach Raoul Voss.  Hoxha is lead on Game Analysis for opponents’ film, editing game film and noticing an opponent’s strengths and weaknesses.

Objective #3: Connect with Ken Tribbett (pictured with Hoxha). Tribbett played for Hoxha during his U11-14 years at Colorado Rush Soccer Club.

Following the match against the Rowdies, Hoxha mentioned, "It was nice to see Penn FC win and certainly a bonus to see one of my former players Kenny. Kenny is a good leader.  He portrays many of our Core Values. I’m really proud of him.”

Penn FC Head Coach Raoul Voss commented on Hoxha’s visit to Harrisburg: "I am glad to have the support of the Rush Staff in the Game Analysis department.  The breakdown of the opponent is helpful and gives me a small edge." Along with Hoxha, Matt Mittelstaedt (National Technical Director and TD of Virginia Rush), Liam Lacy (Chicago Rush), Ryan Hayes (Chicago Rush), Mbiyen Mpasu (Michigan Rush), and Tim Schulz (CEO & President of Rush Soccer) make up the Game Analytics team that assists Voss and Penn FC Rush.

Rush Soccer has a unique player base of 32,000 youth players around the globe that help create a complete pyramid from cradle to pro. This allows Rush Soccer to give its youth new opportunities for growth at the professional levels, while remaining focused on helping its existing clubs with club development and growth. As portrayed in Hoxha’s visit to Harrisburg, Rush Soccer clubs are eager to assist in making Penn FC Rush’s inaugural season in the USL a good start to a rich Rush Way culture in Harrisburg.
