Monty Hawkins has been a coach for over two decades, extending a career on the pitch that began when he was just a kid. From starring as a teenaged phenom at Gladstone High School, captaining Oregon State’s first Division I soccer squad, and earning his professional stripes as a member of Germany’s TSG Tübingen, , Monty ascended through the athletic ranks faster than a rock climber riding a mountain goat. Today, he passes on his expertise to the next generation as co-owner of Tualatin Indoor Soccer. At the arena, stadium lights cast a blinding radiance across the freshly re-turfed, 186’x86’ field surrounded by 10-foot walls and glass, while up to 80 fans track the action in year-round adult and youth leagues. Monty also helps youngsters gear up for the spotlight at kids’ classes that promote not only athleticism, but also fun and friendship.
