What does it mean to represent Liverpool FC:
 
"Liverpool’s holistic vision for player development appeals to me because it is the way we’ve always done things as a club. And more than training and technical improvements, this is about growing a soccer culture here in the US as representatives of a club that is recognized all over the world. It’s about being a part of something bigger than ourselves and seeing kids develop into good people and good competitors."
