Playing Experience
Mo played soccer in Africa and Europe. At the age of five, he was playing on the streets of Algiers. At 10 he was recruited by the local youth professional soccer club academy, NAHD. He went through intensive programs at the mini, cadet, and junior levels. He was promoted at 18 to the premier starting line up as a forward/Midfielder. After 4 years, he attended soccer camps in France, and played at the summer leagues for semi- pro clubs before joining a division 2 team. The chance to attend a graduate school in the USA brought him to the west coast amateur soccer league, where he played for a few years. In Ohio, he joined the Akron amateur league and led the team to the city championship.

Even though retired from playing with soccer clubs, Mo still plays indoor and outdoor competitively. He has coached every age group including HS kids in the indoor and summer leagues. As time permits, he plans on pursuing his USSF training.

I have been playing soccer since 1978.   I have played Club soccer from grade school through college and I still play to this day. 

I have been a member with Cleveland Select since spring of 2008.  I would like to bring my philosophy of the game the Club and assist in the development of the youth program.   I believe that good soccer players show discipline on and off the filed, play to win, and play with passion.  They need to agree to the fact that they are a team working as a group for one common purpose.   If the player accepts their role, they will be a more confident player and learn lessons from the game that will translate to other areas of their lives.

Ben Schwartz, the current JV Boys coach at Hawken, is passionate about soccer and has over fourteen years of high-level soccer playing experience to show for it. Ben started out by attending every possible week of his favorite soccer summer camp. This quickly led to joining the Potomac Rockets club team. He played for Potomac from the age of nine to eighteen, and helped them to win the National Capital Soccer League D1 championship as well as the U-16 MD state cup. Ben was a member and a regular starter for the MD Olympic Development Team from 7th through 12th grade. Also, he was on the Eastern Regional ODP team from 8th through 9th grade and the National ODP Pool during 9th grade. During his senior year at Wootton High School, Ben was a varsity captain, receiving 2nd team All-met and 2nd team All-state honors. As a college freshman, Ben received regular varsity playing time at Johns Hopkins University, after which he played for an additional four years with University of Maryland’s club team. Ben is excited to be able to share the game he knows and loves with his students.

Ben recently moved to be near his father’s family in Cleveland after receiving a MA in philosophy from the University of Washington, Seattle, where he taught for thirteen quarters. In addition to coaching, Ben is a tutor for math, physics, and writing; an instructor at Lakeland Community College; and is taking classes towards a Math & Physics teaching license at CSU.  Another lifelong passion of Ben’s is music, and he enjoys playing guitar whenever he can find the time
