Fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTY, due to never having played in a FPL. An IP, almost certainly either the subject of this article, or linked to his company, has been going around fluffing up this article, and many others, with claims that simply aren't backed up by the sources they use (which half the time are Wikipedia articles or categories, or flat out don't work). After cleaning up the mess, there's nothing left here that suggests notability, and nor is he particularly notable for his company. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 11:40, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete – The first two references are from reliable sources and attest to the fact that he played at UNC, but participating in college sports is not notable. The third reference appears to be a fansite, and no copyright notice on the page only serves to confirm that it is not reliable. I cannot review the fourth reference from work as archive.org is blocked, but even if it confirms that he played for the Dallas Sidekicks, he still does not meet WP:NFOOTY as the leagues of which the Sidekicks were part were not full professional. The three reliable sources are only WP:ROUTINE coverage, therefore WP:GNG is not met. — Jkudlick tcs 06:06, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTBALL. GiantSnowman 12:44, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - He has not played in a fully pro league or received significant coverage, meaning the article fails WP:NSPORT and WP:GNG. Sir Sputnik (talk) 16:35, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - Fails WP:NFOOTBALL as he hasn't played in a fully professional league and he doesn't have any senior international caps. IJA (talk) 20:04, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - Player fails WP:NFOOTY as has not played in a fully professional league, nor senior international football. No indication of any other achievements that have garnered sufficient, significant coverage to satisfy WP:GNG. Fenix down (talk) 13:23, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - Does not pass WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTY. — Joaquin008 (talk) 12:10, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
