Coach Mike Latty Turns 60!

This weekend was a momentous occasion for members of the soccer community in North Alabama as family, friends, and alumni of Coach Mike Latty came together to celebrate 60 years of life, and over 30 years of greatness that Mike Latty has blessed our community with his charismatic smile, his outstanding skill and genius in the game of soccer, and his wonderful perspective and attitude as a friend, father figure, coach and mentor to so many people.

The day started with the Mike Latty Alumni Game, as close to 60 friends and former players of coach Latty ranging from his playing days at Alabama A&M, to his illustrious coaching career at A&M, Grissom High School, Eagles Soccer Club, Kicks FC and United Soccer Club.

Words cannot describe how much all former players and friends of coach Latty appreciate all the wonderful years he has blessed, and will continue to bless us with so many great memories, and positive examples he has taught us through our experience and time with him on and off the soccer field.
We wish coach Latty a very special birthday today, and we bless his entire family, his wonderful wife Rita, his daughter LaTarra and grandson D-Mike, and his son Jay and his wife, Karey. Happy 60th Birthday, and many more to come!!!
Your Alumni, Friends, and Family
