Cameron Richardson grew up playing soccer in Anchorage, Alaska and two other states as his family moved around when he was a kid. After making their final move to AK, he played for Goldstrikers 89′ boys’ team. His team made an immediate impact on the local soccer scene winning tournaments and awards left and right. He played striker and was a goal scoring machine. Their state championship winning season they won all of the tournaments in town and in Fairbanks, his goal count racked up to 65, but was too young to play in Regionals. He only played three years of high school, one at Service and two at South Anchorage. He was part of the first ever South Boys soccer state winning teams both junior and senior year. His senior year they won the Conference, Region, and State Tournaments. He made first team All-State and first team All-Region, while also securing a state championship MVP scoring two goals against Juneau, including the game winner in overtime.

He accepted the offer to go overseas and play for Irish International, Terry Phelan, in New Zealand in the NZFC. Living in Dunedin, He was playing first team Semi-Pro for Otago United. It was the best soccer all around experienced Cameron says. After returning home to AK after one season, He decided to pursue his Culinary Arts degree and enrolled at Western Culinary Institute, Le Cordon Bleu, in Portland, OR. He always wanted to coach kids since he stopped playing a few years ago and is really looking forward to coaching.
