Josh Carson has played four times for Northern Ireland, made an explosive scoring start to his professional career at Ipswich Town, was a title winner with Linfield and last season won the League Cup with Coleraine having suffered agony at missing out on their Irish Cup success a couple of years before.
Yet speak to the Bannsiders hero about his side's stunning Europa League victory over Maribor and he will tell you it ranks as one of the best experiences he has had in his career.
Carson was outstanding in Slovenia last month. Like the Duracell Bunny, he just kept on running as Oran Kearney's men pulled off the shock of the first qualifying round, drawing 1-1 after extra-time before winning in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.
It was a result that, following a 1-0 victory over La Fiorita courtesy of a late James McLaughlin belter, kept Coleraine in competitive action as they wait for the Irish League to start, and set up another cracking contest at home to Scottish Premiership side Motherwell tomorrow night.
For Carson, the magic of Maribor will live long in the memory.
"Without question that victory in Slovenia was one of the best experiences I have had in football," said Carson, so adaptable he could play virtually anywhere on the pitch.
"It is a result that is in the history books now for Coleraine and it was great to be part of it, and it is something that dreams are made of when you play in the Irish League.
"Qualifying for Europe, you always believe that you will have a chance in your first game and we did that by getting through the La Fiorita tie, but nobody gave us a prayer of going away to Maribor and winning.
"For everyone involved in that success, it is something that will stay with us and I believe it was built on a hunger and desire to do well.
"At Coleraine we push ourselves on and motivate each other and that never-say-die spirit came to the fore against Maribor.
"When we went ahead they equalised shortly after, and at that point heads could have dropped, but we continued to dig deep and keep going and it paid off for us."
In the Irish Cup semi-finals, Coleraine were knocked out on penalties by Ballymena United but in Slovenia there would be a different outcome.
"All the boys did really well in the shoot-out, especially when you think about what happened in the Irish Cup," added Carson.
The 27-year-old and his team-mates are now itching to face Motherwell in the second qualifying round, with the winners travelling away from home on September 24 to whoever comes through between KF Laci (Albania) and Hapoel Beer Sheva (Israel).
For Carson, it's a chance to catch up with his former Northern Ireland Under-21 manager Stephen Robinson, who has worked wonders as manager at Fir Park.
"I remember Robbo from coming through the ranks with Northern Ireland and then playing under him at Under-21 level and he was fantastic for me, just a brilliant man who I loved playing for," he said.
"Robbo is a bit like Oran in that his man management is excellent. He is open and honest and seeing how successful he has been with Motherwell has not been a surprise to me.
"When the Northern Ireland job came up after Michael O'Neill left I thought Robbo was unlucky not to get it but I have no doubt he can go on to the next level.
"It will be good to see him again and he's such a good guy. I want him to be a success in whatever he does but not against us in the Europa League. I would love to get one over on him in the tie and help us make it through."
Carson, whose energy and ability will be key to Coleraine's hopes in the second qualifying round clash, added: "I know Motherwell haven't made the start to the Scottish Premiership that they would have wanted but they will enter our game as big favourites and we are going to have to put in a great performance against them.
"There's a good buzz around the changing room at the moment. We are in dreamland at the moment having won a couple of rounds in Europe, but we want to keep our run going against Motherwell and will be pushing ourselves on to try and get another big result.
"They are full-time and we are part-time, and the odds are in their favour, but it is a home tie for us and we will do all we can to create another upset."
