North Side HS: Christopher Lunsford
I am Christopher Lunsford, the Head Girls Soccer Coach for North Side High. I started with FWISD in 2003 at J.P. Elder Middle School, where I coached Soccer, Cross Country, and Track. I moved up to North Side three years later and became the Boy's JV Soccer coach, where I enjoyed coaching with Head Coach Garth Briggeman for many successful years. I moved over to become the Girls Head Coach in 2017-18 and became the Girls Athletic Coordinator in 2018-19.
I began playing soccer when I was three years old and can only remember missing one season since then. I played Club Soccer for Challenge, American Eagles, and FC Lynx. I don't think any of those clubs still exist because I'm getting old and that was a long time ago.
My greatest soccer memory was scoring a goal in the Dallas Cup Super Group during the opening ceremonies while thousands of fans cheered USA, USA, USA because an American team was actually winning a game in the Super Group.
