Soccer is a second nature to Kliver. He was born in Iraq, so pursuing his dreams was a difficult task and a challenge. His family moved to America and blessed him with opportunity to play the game he loves in four different countries during the long journey to America. Not only was he able to learn four languages but he also learned four different styles of playing soccer.
From his early childhood he has always loved playing soccer. When his family moved to Greece, Athens he was given his first chance to play club soccer. He spent two years playing club for a Greek coach and two years for a Brazilian coach. When his family moved once more he spent six months in Tijuana, Mexico before reaching his final destination, America. In America he was able to use his skills to aid his high school team that struggled greatly. During Kliver’s senior year he assisted the coach and lead the team to their first successful season in twenty-five years, reaching the state semifinals.
Kliver is currently pursuing his fire science degree at Paradise Valley Community College and plans to continue his education at Grand Canyon University to earn his bachelor’s degree.
