The Story

I have been lucky enough to call Puerto Rico my home for the past year and a half. In March of 2016, I signed my second professional contract to play professional soccer in Puerto Rico for a team in the North American Soccer League. Ever since I arrived on the island I have received nothing but love and support from everyone I have encountered on and off the field. I have had the privilege of meeting many young kids and going to many different communities to bring my knowledge and the joy of the beautiful game to the future of Puerto Rico and Puerto Rican soccer.

As many of you know, Puerto Rico and many other Carribean Islands have been greatly affected by 2 of the most powerful hurricanes to ever be recorded in the Atlantic Ocean. I was still on the island and braced for the category 5 hurricane Irma, which thankfully barely hit the island but definitely left its damage. Irma unearthed many trees and knocked out power to most of the island for days. I was without power for only 3 days, but many people were still without power or only getting their power back just as another category 5 hurricane Maria hit the island. 100% of the island is without power and running water. Many are reporting that the island will be without those necessities for months. I want to do my part to help the people who have helped me during my time on the island.

I have added up all my social media following (Facebook friends, twitter followers, and Instagram followers) and if everyone donates atleast 1$ we will be able to reach $7,207. All donatations will be given back to the people of Puerto Rico who are in desperate need of our help. Please take the time to donate and share this page with as many people as possible so we can help the people on la Isla Del Encanto/Enchanted Island of Puerto Rico.

Thank you very much for your time and donations!
