You’re officially a Quakes Devotion Scarf recipient! Explain what it means to you to get this honor?
Receiving the Devotion Scarf means a lot to me. To know my dedication and support to the Earthquakes community have made a difference is a great feeling.
Talk to us about your Quakes fandom. How long have you been cheering on the black & blue? What is your most memorable moment?
I’ve been a Quakes fan as long as I can remember. Growing I saw the NASL and MISL Quakes, and now the MLS Quakes. My most memorable moment has to be walking into Buck Shaw with my son DJ for his 1st game, a 4-0 win vs NY Red Bulls (and of course Wondo scored). He’s been hooked on the Quakes ever since.
Who is your favorite Quakes player and why?
Current Wondo, not only is he a great player for us, but an amazing person.
Past: GK Mike Hewitt, another great guy who did a lot in the youth soccer community I was in. I cried when his contract was sold to Montreal.
What would be your message to Quakes fans out there?
Never Say Die! This season has shown us, even when things look like they are done, anything can and will happen. 2020 was not what we all hoped for...but we’ll build on it and make 2021 the Year of the Quakes!
