NJYS Legends Series Ep. 14: Tab Ramos

New Jersey Youth Soccer continues its NJYS Legends Video Series, where NJYS Director of Technical Operations James Galanis hosts online conversations with current and former professional players from the State of New Jersey. The conversations feature various topics that are relative to each guest, from sharing their best at-home training methods to reflecting back upon playing in New Jersey ODP and other NJYS programming.
In this conversation, Galanis speaks with National Soccer Hall of Famer Tab Ramos, who is currently the head coach of the Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer (MLS).
Ramos joined the Dynamo in 2019 after serving as the head coach of the U.S. U-20 National Team since 2011 and as the U.S. Soccer Youth Technical Director since 2013. During that time, he led the U-20s to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019, including three consecutive quarterfinal appearances. He was also an assistant coach for the U.S. Men's National Team when it reached the Round of 16 in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Ramos was one of the greatest and most decorated players in U.S. Soccer history. Playing in a variety of roles in the midfield, the Uruguay native earned 81 caps with the U.S. Men’s National Team and represented the United States in the 1990, 1994 and 1998 FIFA World Cups, the 1995 Copa América and the 1988 Seoul Olympics. The New Jersey native was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2005.
Ramos was named the U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year in 1990 and was the Concacaf Player of the Year in 1994 after leading the United States to the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time since 1950.
