KC Wizards Soccer Player




 

                                                                                                                                                                           

   

Who do you think will win the World Cup this year?

-I’m going with Brazil.  I don’t think a lot of people are, even though they are usually a favorite.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

-History.  My grandfather liked to tell me stories about war and other things in the past and that is probably what got me into history.

 

What is the best part about being a professional soccer player?

-I think the best part is just getting to do what you love for a living.  It has been my lifelong dream.  I get to get up every day and do something that I love.

 

If you weren’t a soccer player what would you be?

-I would want to be a lawyer.  I have a few people in my family that are lawyers.  I talk to them about it and it sounds pretty cool.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

-Thierry Henry has been one of my favorite soccer players growing up.  He is coming to New York after the World Cup and they get to play against us.

 

How did you respond to your teammates when you found out that a nationally picked-up April Fools joke had been played on you?

-I responded with laughter, which was pretty much the only way I could respond to it.  We had a pretty good time with it.  We joked around and had a good time.  It was a bit embarrassing.  I wasn’t too mad about it.  I haven’t gotten even yet – though I plan to get them. 

 

How have you grown as a player over the last few seasons?

-Just transitioning to the game here.  It is different than it was in college – just learning to play faster.  I try to make good decisions on the ball.  This is my 4th year and I am growing each year.

 

What do you like to do off the field?

-Just kind of lay low, hang out, nothing too strenuous.  I live on the Plaza in KC and I like to go shopping with my teammates.

 

How does faith play a part in your life?

-It plays a big part in my life.  I became a Christian about 6 years ago.  I owe everything in my life to God.
