Soccer is his favorite sport. He was a start in his youth and only picked football for the money and pressure from those around him. MLS didnt start until he was 18.

He has trained with european sides and is often scene at Arsenal matches since he is a fan of the team.

He is a top class athlete and could very well be a solid addition as a late game sub.

Meh...last week he was going to do a MMA fight.

Someone just isn't getting enough attention I think.

This has been in the works for awhile. He has always wanted to play soccer and the only reason he chose football was because the MLS was just forming when he went to college and their really wasnt a future for young soccer players at that time.

I'll wish the guy luck. He grew up with the game, should be quite fit, has been a mini ambassador for the game, and could be decent. If he makes the team, it'll definately bring extra attention to MLS.
