Last month I participated in one of AX Soccer Tour's professional soccer tryouts. While I was not one of the players selected for a direct trial or contract offer, I was invited onto AX’s Development Showcase to Spain in February 2018.
During the showcase I will train daily with professional coaches and will compete against the professional level in Europe that I am striving to reach. It is also a chance for agents and recruiters to analyze me more closely over 2 weeks to see if I have the ability and mentality to be recommended to lower division sides in Europe.
I think everyone knows this has been my dream for over two decades. I love soccer. I love playing soccer. I love coaching soccer (shoutout Soccer Genome).
I fully intend to realize my dream of playing professional soccer but need a little help getting there. While I am less than thrilled to ask for handouts, I will not let pride prevent me from achieving a lifelong goal. So I am humbly asking for whatever donations you can spare to help me take my talents (and corny jokes) to Spain.
Thank you all so much!
