Manfred Schellscheidt in 1970 became the USA's first A-license coach. He won youth, amateur and pro national titles, coached at every level of
the U.S. men's national team program, and entered the Hall of Fame in 1990. In 2011, he
retired after 24 seasons as Seton Hall coach and 13 years as head of the U.S. U-14 boys national team program. But Schellscheidt, who turns 76 in two weeks, continues to coach -- and play.
Schellscheidt coaches at the New York Bulls youth academy and it was at Red Bull Arena that Schellscheidt’s friends and colleagues celebrated his 75th birthday last year and created a tribute
video that features, among others, Sacha Kljestan, Tony Meola, John Harkes and Tab Ramos.
Schellscheidt's granddaughter, Brittani Bartok, produced this video of
Schellscheidt enjoying "the magic of the ball."
