20 Questions With The Colony Soccer Coach Lee Weddall

20 Questions With The Colony Soccer Coach Lee Weddall

by Steve Gamel

The 2018 soccer season is well underway at The Colony. Head boys coach Lee Weddall has been at the helm for nine seasons and is hoping his Cougars can make a solid run through district play and qualify for the playoffs.

Coach Weddall sat down with us recently to play an old-fashioned game of 20 Questions, where he dished on everything from his love for soccer to the one chore he despises the most.

Q: If you could not coach soccer, what sport would you coach and why?
A: Rugby. It’s fast-paced and it shares a lot of the same characteristics as soccer.

Q: If you couldn’t coach at all, what would you do for a living?
A: I think I’d still teach. I’d probably be some sort of corporate trainer.

Q: Do you have any phobias?
A: Yes. I really hate giant centipedes. I’ve never seen one in person, but those things freak me out. They’re horrendous.

Q: What is the dumbest thing you ever did as a kid?
A: I think I was in the sixth grade and I tried to pop a wheelie in front of some girls. I immediately fell over. It was embarrassing.

Q: Who is the funniest coach at The Colony High School?
A: Martin Dean. He’s the head baseball coach.

Q: What is your favorite food?
A: Real Indian food.

Q: What was the worst coaching decision you’ve ever made?
A: I would have to say it was when I cut a kid from my club team for a better player. At the time, I didn’t appreciate how much that boy meant to the other kids on the team. Looking back, I would have kept a less-skilled player if it meant that much to the team dynamic.

Q: What type of student were you in high school?
A: I was very bright, but I was also a little out of control. I was too busy enjoying sports cars, soccer, and chasing girls.

Q: How many years of coaching do you think you have left in you?
A: I’ve probably got another 10 or 15 years left. I’d have to punctuate that statement by saying I’d probably take a short sabbatical somewhere in there to recharge.

Q: Favorite color?
A: Blue

Q: The Colony has a lot of rivals. Which one do you take the most pleasure in beating?
A: If you were to ask the kids, they’d say Little Elm. Geographically, it makes sense but I’m not really feeling it. I’d say I take more pleasure in beating the Class 6A teams.

Q: What do you do for fun during a night off from the field?
A: I like to take the dog on hikes.

Q: What’s one thing nobody knows about you?
A: I used to be a commodities trader in London.

Q: Captain America or Iron Man?
A: Captain America

Q: Batman or Superman?
A: Superman

Q: If you were stuck in an elevator with one person, who would you want that to be?
A: Jesus Christ

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Watching soccer or reading about it.

Q: Have you been overseas before (besides London) and where?
A: I’ve been to German, France Denmark, Asia, Thailand, and Hong Kong. I’ve been everywhere.

Q: What’s the last movie you saw in a movie theater?
A: Justice League

Q: What is the one chore around the house that you hate the most?
A: Giving the dog a bath. He’s a nightmare.
