Kwame, as he prefers to be called, is entering his first year as a graduate assistant coach at Heidelberg University. After a successful playing career at Mount Vernon Nazarene University and in his native Ghana, he is excited to begin working with the Heidelberg’s athletic program.
During his career, Kwame played with several clubs in Ghana before moving to the United States. As a utility player, he played three seasons at Mount Vernon Nazarene University with the Men’s Soccer team. While at Mount Vernon, Kwame helped his team to be ranked in the NAIA Top 25 and made the American Midwest Conference tournament finals.
Kwame anchored a defense which posted 15 shutouts in 2009 en route to the national tournament, where he received All-Tournament honors. In 2010, the Cougars finished with overall record of 17-7-2 and 11 shutouts. During his senior year, Kwame was a co-captain and he helped maintained great leadership both on off the field of play for the younger players to emulate.
Prior to joining the staff at Heidelberg, Kwame coached at a variety of soccer clinics in the Greater Columbus area and volunteered at the North Columbus YMCA.
Kwame is originally from Ghana and moved to the United States in 2004. A graduate from Aggrey Memorial High School, Kwame started his college degree at Columbus State Community College before transferring to Mount Vernon Nazarene University where he graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Exercise Science. He is currently working to complete his Master’s degree in Education from Heidelberg.
