Houston Aces Management

William T. Brumbaugh, President / Owner

Aces Debut: 2012

Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah

Favorite Aces Moment: The flight home from the USASA mid-year Meeting where the idea and concept of The Houston Aces was born.

Background: After a life of living abroad and growing up with the game of soccer all around me; I settled in Houston in the late 80's early 90's. I have played the beautiful game since 4 years of age and continue to play to this day. My legacy is to provide the opportunities to all players who wish to continue playing at all levels of the game. I am the fifth generation in my family bloodline and each of us has been successful in various fields including farming, academics, culinary arts, geophysics, and now soccer. My family is very important to me and my growing soccer family has gained the same respect.

Bill Van der vlist, Referee Liaison

Aces Debut: 2013

Hometown: Canberra, Australia

Favorite Aces Moment: It will be when the Houston Aces make the grade to be a truly championship team representing Houston!

Background: My early days in Australia are filled with great memories like playing with the captain of the Socceroo's in the 70’s, Johnny Warren, and serving on the Board of Directors for the Canberra City Soccer Club. My involvement in the sport has spanned over 50 years so far and I am not done yet! I continue to referee and am hoping to use my experience and passion to help others no matter what area of expertise they need help with. I was presented with the Appreciation Award in 1997 and in 1999 and was granted the ultimate prize in 2002 "Life Membership" from ACTSF during my referee career. I can still remember lecturing the class at Kambah High School where Ben Williams was a student and saying to him and the other students "You can become a FIFA referee and get to the World Cup if you want to" Well he did! These days I enjoy being involved with the many youth and adult tournaments held in the Houston area as this keeps me fit, in touch and continues to feed my passion for the "The World Game"! Now it is time to add another chapter, the Houston Aces.
