After which Jimmy saw the pro ranks at Deporto Municipal and then to Aris in Greece, eventually landing with NJ Stallions as a member of the mens pro team from 2000-2002. Jimmy’s time as a youth coach in the state of New Jersey has allowed some very good clubs such as Ironbound Newark, Pasco Stallions, and Boys & Girls Club in Wayne, the chance to have him develop great players, both boys and girls, who have gone on to play at very high level collegiate programs here in the US.
