HIGHLINE PREMIER FC
COACHING STAFF
Community-Oriented Professionals
 
We have a diverse coaching staff that shares a goal of giving back to the Highline community. All of our coaches have illustrious playing backgrounds and share a passion for the game. Most importantly, we believe Highline Premier coaches are more than just a coach. They are mentors, teachers, and advocates who are committed to continuous improvement and developing players and their families. Each coach cares about all players, not just as soccer players but as young people.
 
Coaching Leadership
Director of Coaching
 
 
Ozzy Erkut
 
Ozzy's journey has come full-circle with this new role, as he had coached at Highline Premier FC nearly 10 years ago. Since then, he has immersed himself in the greater Seattle area's local youth and college soccer culture, with coaching at Seattle United, Edmonds College, and most recently at Eastside FC. In addition to his many coaching roles, Ozzy has extensive experience running skills camps and clinics, most notably the Arsenal FC Soccer Schools in Hawaii for many years. The past 10 years of working in local youth soccer have enabled Ozzy to build a vast network of fellow youth soccer coaches and administrators and past players and families.
 
Ozzy has an approachable and friendly nature coupled with a soccer IQ steeped in coaching experience and from years of professional soccer for Bursaspor FC in his home country of Turkey. He is what you might call a true "student of the game." He possesses a full flight of United Soccer Coaches diplomas, including a USSF C License, FA-UEFA B license, and the FA International Coaching license. He plans to continue his pursuit of advanced licensure.
 
Assistant Director of Coaching
Andre Gutierrez
 
I coach and mentor young athletes because I love the game and the fundamental values I developed as a result of participating in youth soccer. One of the most important skills I learned throughout my soccer career was to always “keep an even keel” and I always project that down to the players I coach or mentor. I strongly value work ethic, commitment, and “serious” fun as I believe those are the key components to a solid foundation on and off the soccer field. My favorite quote is “Work Hard. Play Hard” and that is the essence of my mantra in my personal life and my coaching style.
Technical Director
Dee Abasute
 
I coach because I love the game and the values I developed as a result of participating in team sports. As a coach, I value building individual and team confidence, continuous learning, and having fun. I want to see players grow as teammates, athletes, and individuals. Developing interpersonal skills and individual characteristics that would help a player on and off the field is my primary goal, because, realistically, lessons learned through playing team sports will outlast most players’ playing careers.
