While searching for a suitable holiday video (freestyle soccer moves set to Christmas music? Yuck. A burning yule log? Been there done that.) I ran across this offering on the Galaxy blog from Van Nuys’ Tristan Bowen.
Bowen, of course made history late this year when he became the first youth player to come up through the ranks of an MLS club and sign a professional contract.
He is also one of the very few players to emerge from the San Fernando Valley in recent years.
So here’s an obviously enthused Bowen talking (a little wide-eyed it must be said) on the Galaxy’s recent trip to New Zealand reflecting on the dramatic turn his life took in 2008.
And of course, it’s always a good time of year to remind aspiring soccer players that, like Bowen’s, your dreams can come true, as well.
Happy holidays from 100 Percent Soccer:
