We’re proud to share the first-ever edition of PSN’s Coaches Corner, a new, Zoom video interview format where Pittsburgh Soccer Now‘s John Krysinsky interviews both current and former soccer coaches.

In this edition, John catches up with two of Pittsburgh Soccer Now’s key high school contributors from the past few years: Ed Rosensteel and Ryan Kelly.

They address how coaches are preparing, what are some of the biggest challenges they’re currently facing as the 2020 high school Fall soccer season in Pennsylvania hangs in the balance.

This is the first part of our conversation. We hope to share the second part in the coming days.

John Krysinsky has covered soccer and other sports for many years for various publications and media outlets. He is also author of 'Miracle on the Mon' -- a book about the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, which chronicles the club, particularly the early years of Highmark Stadium with the narrative leading up to and centered around a remarkable match that helped provide a spark for the franchise. John has covered sports for Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, DK Pittsburgh Sports, Pittsburgh Sports Report, has served as color commentator on Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC broadcasts, and worked with OPTA Stats and broadcast teams for US Open Cup and International Champions Cup matches held in the US. Krysinsky also served as the Head Men’s Soccer Coach at his alma mater, Point Park University, where he led the Pioneers to the first-ever winning seasons and playoff berths (1996-98); head coach of North Catholic boys (2007-08), associate head coach of Shady Side Academy boys (2009-2014).
