Veteran Football Coach of the Belize Jaguars Dies in Costa Rica

Veteran football coach, Leroy Sherrier Lewis has died. Known as “Profe”, Sherrier Lewis, a Costa Rican, led Belize’s Jaguars to its first ever Gold Cup qualification as head coach in 2013. He also led the U-15 to a gold medal. Prior to his Gold Cup success, he coached the team in 2000 and 2001 but left the post after he and the then FFB executive, led by Doctor Bertie Chimilio had differences. After the stint with the Jaguars, he would return to Belize to coach the Belmopan Bandits for the Concacaf Champions League achieving measurable success. Citing a number of reasons including his age, Sherrier Lewis left during the time Ruperto Vicente headed the FFB. In a press release issued by the Sergio Chuc-led FFB, they say that Profe will quote “…always be remembered for the passion he demonstrated for the sport and for the impact he had on the lives of those he touched. Forever a Jaguar. May he RIP.” End quote. Sherrier Lewis died on Monday in his hometown of Limon, Costa Rica aged 76.
