Last year in February I drove from Salinas to Seattle to train with @soundersfc2 for a couple of weeks thanks to Brian Schmetzer and John Hutchinson. I was given an opportunity to play for S2 and coach the Sounders Academy thanks to Marc Nicholls. It turned out to be the most rewarding year in my professional career on and off the field. Truly excited to follow all the academy’s boys careers. I am forever grateful to have been a part of @soundersfc @soundersfc2 @soundersfcacademy_ #followyourheart #thebestisyettocome
