Eaton’s soccer education was a rich one in England where he was rated one of the very best young players in the Nation, just missing out on the National team in 1979. He was invited to tryouts with several Pro teams and gained the benefit of phenomenal coaching at such places as Nottingham Forest, Leeds United, Leicester City, Derby County and the English Youth Team before deciding to join Notts County Football Club. While continuing his schooling Eaton played four years for the Magpies and was the leading goal-scorer in the Youth team and a significant player in the midlands club reserve team. Indeed, prior to coming to the U.S. Eaton played soccer in several countries while suiting up for County and considers himself privileged to have been trained by some of the best coaches in the world. 

 

Moving to the USA in 1984 Eaton went on to play as an All American at Lock Haven University where he was named one of the top 25 players of the century in 2000.

 

A storied college coaching career saw Eaton acclaimed as one of the brightest young coaches in the country. Four Coach of the Year awards were provided to him in 18 years of college coaching in addition to winning league and conference championships and totally redefining the record books at several institutions along the way. Eaton guided four players to the ALL American level and saw dozens of players receive All Conference and League honors under his guidance as he saw stops at California university of PA, Lycoming College, Methodist college (NC), Clarion university & Lock Haven University.

 

Eaton has not only played with; played in front of; and coached our area's youngsters, but he has also inspired them to further their own soccer playing and coaching careers with not only his immense knowledge, but also with his love and spirit for the game. Well over two dozen of Eaton’s former players are now themselves respected coaches at both the High School and College levels across the country, and all veteran SECOND TO NONE campers will inform you of an enjoyable and rewarding soccer experience under his guidance.
