Coach Victor is married to Lora Lidaywa and they have three children (Braxton, Bryson, and Brixley).
Silvester Erude (Coach Sly) is a coach at MSA and is a licensed US Soccer Federation soccer coach as well as a recently certified IHSA official. Coach Sly works for the State of Illinois as a counselor for the IL Department of Corrections in Mt. Sterling. He attained his bachelor’s degree from the University of Nairobi in Kenya and has two graduate degrees from Western Illinois University.

Coach Vic and Coach Sly are brothers and grew up in Kenya where they played soccer from an early age.
Lora Lidaywa is an assistant at MSA and works at Western Illinois University in Purchasing. She attained her bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois. Lora enjoys cooking, traveling, playing music trivia, and watching movies.
Cara Erude is an assistant at MSA and works at McDonough District Hospital. Cara attained her associate degree from Spoon River College and is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree from Western Illinois University. Cara enjoys cooking, traveling, music, reading, and spending time with her family.
A future goal of MSA is to have a competitive traveling team for the U12 & U14 league. We hope that these sessions will help to introduce the game of soccer to those that have never played and to increase the skills and confidence of those who have previous soccer experience.
Thank you for your continued interest and support!
