SWM Remembers Coach Mark Lehmann...
The SWM Kickers Family and the entire soccer community in the Lakeshore area are saddened by the sudden loss of Mark Lehmann. Our hearts go out to his wife Erin and their three boys Jason, AJ and Paul and the rest of the Lehmann family.
Mark coached for SWM Kickers and at Lakeshore High School for 11 years with 10 of those years as Varsity Assistant Coach. Brian Samuel, SWM Kickers Director of Coaching and Lakeshore HS Varsity Head Coach, remembers Mark as, "A great coach, friend, husband and dad. Mark was huge part of West Michigan soccer through SJ Kickers as a player and member, SWM Kickers as a coach and Lakeshore as a coach and supporter of the stadium and turf construction. Mark was always willing to train any player willing to listen and enjoy his sport."
