It is very important to me to be working with these amount of black athletes all striving for the same thing which is change any quality. We are not fighting for our own personal agendas, but for the future and betterment of our league and soccer in America.

1 – 3 sentences on what BPC means to you

It mean Change is coming and we (BPC) are going to be one of those groups that is participating in this movement of Equality/Change in the world.

What has your experience been the league and what do you hope to see change?

After playing in the MLS for over a decade, I’ve played against and with some good professionals who happens to be black. Where are they now? I don’t know. These were people that have given a lot to this league and organizations, but Have been wrongly done for post career opportunities. With the BPC, I can see us influencing this change and open up some workplace equality and diversity.
