“I’m super excited to be joining DME Academy, Sarasota. I’ve grown up in this area my whole life and played soccer at so many clubs. I came back to coach in this area after my playing career to give young soccer players the chances or guidance I never had at their age. I feel DME Sarasota and what they offer is just that for me and the players. The future is bright, come be a part of it!” – Jake Dube
“Jake has a fire in him that ignites his players to run through walls and play at a very high level. The boys respond to him, they want to learn from him and play for him. For this very reason, we are adding him to the staff. The future is bright for this young man and we are happy that he became a free agent this April!” – Jared Antista
