David was raised in Bountiful, UT. with his three younger siblings.   David loved to play soccer growing up and excelled into his 20’s.   Playing for a local club team, Inter FC, the team went on to win 5 state cup championships. David was selected from the western 13 states to represent the western region national team playing forward. David loved to score goals to advance his team to the next stages of any tournament/game.  He briefly had the opportunity to train with Real Salt Lake’s first team before heading off to play for the D1 PAC 10 (at the time) Oregon State University team on scholarship. The decision to leave during his sophomore year to serve a full-time L.D.S. mission in Chicago, IL would prove to be one of his greatest experiences in life. Once he returned home he joined Brigham Young University and continued his education in business. He was also asked to “…play with
the school’s P.D.L.(Premier Development League) team.


He played very well his last season as he was the school's leading goal scorer.   With an opportunity for B.Y.U. to play Real Salt Lake in David’s final season, he was fortunate enough to score a last-minute goal to tie the game with the then #1 M.L.S. (Major League Soccer) team in the U.S.
