What drew you to soccer? "My parents are from Haiti and that's the main sport over there. My dad got me started when I was 4. He's been my coach all the way up to club. He's worked with me ever since I was little, took me out every day. He helped my skills progress. Basically, it became part of me. It's really fun to me. I love the sport. He's what got me started. He's my inspiration." --As told to Tobias Xavier Lopez
