When Zach Standefer has down time from his job as a law enforcement agent, he spends it focusing on another passion: coaching soccer. Originally from Texas, Standefer grew up playing competitive soccer, including in Knoxville for one of the root clubs of FC Alliance (SMSC). He eventually played for Farragut High School.
Coach Standefer first got involved in the club when his son Gavin joined. Now he works with some of the top younger boys teams, bringing his experience as a player and knowledge of the game at a club level to every practice.
Coach Standefer is married to wife Shantel and in addition to his son Gavin has a daughter, Molly. When he isn't catching bad guys or coaching youth soccer, he spends time golfing, working out and snowboarding.
