In 1950, with the help of others, he started the Caledonia Soccer Club and played there, with a brief interruption by the U.S. Air Force, until the club was disbanded in 1954. Stan spent one year with A.C. Germania, and then joined the Vikings S.C. in 1955, where he remained until 1969 when he retired from playing at the age of 43. Stanís individual honors included several selections to the Utah All-Star Team that competed in Colorado, Nevada and California. In 1954 Stan also had an opportunity to try out for the U.S. Olympic Team. Most of all, Stan enjoyed the many years of competition and comradeship.
