About Coach Jacobs:

Curtis has been coaching soccer for nine years. He began coaching at Kingman High school in 1998, as a newly graduated player and has continued ever since. Curtis has enjoyed training teams at all levels, especially as his children have grown through the Phoenix Rising and AYSO Region 1079 recreational and All-Star programs. When not on the soccer pitch, Curtis works in accounting at GoDaddy, enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, and challenging himself running or cycling.
