Chuck Hommey was born and raised in the Frederick area until he was Middle School age. He recalls that there were no club teams back when he was playing in his younger days.
“There were some community teams and then there was also a program at the YMCA back then.” He was invited to play on a travel team. He was a goalkeeper and was able to get plenty of practice to hone his craft.
He then moved to the Walkersville area and played soccer for Walkersville High School. He continued to play there and was mentored into the goalkeeper position. He went on to play at West Virginia University.
