Zeke

Assistant Coach

Hello everyone! My name is Zeke Ume-Ukeje. I went to Cathedral School for Boys for middle school and currently attend San Francisco University High School. I started playing soccer when I was first able to walk. When kindergarten came around, I started playing with SF Youth Sports Academy all the way up until sixth grade. Our team, at the time called “The Rebels” won our league multiple times and had consecutive undefeated seasons. At one point we were ranked nationally for our age group. In seventh grade, I went to school in NIgeria for a year. I played pickup soccer there with kids from my school some who were 3-4 years older than me. When I came back, I finished my last year at Cathedral and prepared to go to University HIgh School the following year. I started on varsity soccer as a freshman and helped the team get to the NCS finals. I love soccer and am looking forward to continued work with the SFYS Bulldogs!


Chase

Assistant Coach

I have played soccer my entire life. It is who I am. My playing career began with SF Youth Sports in U6 soccer. I played in the US Development Academy League, the highest level of youth soccer in the United States. This is the same league many of the MLS teams place their academies. After two years of playing at the U14 level, I moved to De Anza Force Academy in the spring of 2016 to further my development as a player. I have remained at De Anza Force ever since.
