Growing up in Whitefish Bay, Wis., coach Chris Finn was an avid soccer player who dreamed of someday representing his country in the World Cup. Years later, Chris realized his childhood goal—albeit in a very different way than he ever imagined. Coach Finn serves as the head coach of the USA National Power Soccer team, a sport that enables severely disabled individuals to compete using electric wheelchairs. In 2007 and 2011, he coached the team to two consecutive World Cup wins—a “dream come true” for Chris, who himself uses a power wheelchair.
