Jeb Heller

2014 Boys Asst. Coach 

Coach Jeb brings with him more than 35 years of soccer experience.  His philosophy is to play a possession game with an attack focus. He grew up playing in the Twin Valley Soccer Club before moving to the Reading Berks Club in middle school.  After playing for Twin Valley High School, he went on to play for the Eastern University Eagles for four years.  For the past 20 years post-graduation, he continued to play in multiple men's leagues throughout Chester, Berks and Lancaster Counties.  He coached at the Twin Valley youth level as well as the junior high level for multiple years.  Currently, Coach Jeb teaches mathematics at Owen J. Roberts Middle School.   His job as a middle school teacher reinforces that every day is a challenge and helps him recognize that to get the best out of his players, he must adapt his soccer strategies to his players' skills.  Through his involvement in soccer over the years, Jeb gained many friendships and learned many life lessons, and he hopes for the same for his young soccer players. Teaching children is his love and soccer are his passion.
