S+S Skills

Kevin Smith (The Smudger)

Kevin grew up playing soccer in England, where he gained a valuable education in the game of soccer while playing for Charlton Athletic in the English Football League.  At aged 17, Kevin scored his first professional goal and is still the youngest player on record to score for Charlton.  In 1984, Kevin brought his soccer abilities to the then first-year Dallas Sidekicks and went on to have an illustrious career spanning 14 years…during that time he was a captain of the team and was voted an All-star no less than 5 times.  Since having his jersey retired in 1999, Kevin has focused his energies on coaching…where he has had a major impact on many players’ lives, sending several hundred into the college arena and many into the professional ranks.  Kevin’s coaching prowess was acknowledged by the NSCAA in 2008 when they named him National Youth Coach of the Year.

Nick Stavrou (His Sidekick)

Nick also grew up in England, learning his trade as a youth player at both Portsmouth & Brighton.  At age 17 he journeyed to the U.S. on a soccer scholarship to earn a degree at the Cleveland State University, where he starred as a two-time All-American.  After being taken #8 in the 1991 Draft by the Dallas Sidekicks, he went on to play 15 seasons (his whole professional playing career) for the team…many of these years were alongside Kevin Smith, including 2 Championship winning seasons.  Besides also captaining the Sidekicks, Nick spent two years on the coaching staff before retiring to concentrate on his real passion, youth coaching.  He has been involved in the working and running of numerous successful youth soccer camps and youth teams over the past 25 years in North Texas.
