[VIDEO PICK: Newtown Tribute] Former Hermann Trophy winner Marcus Tracy, who joined the San Jose Earthquakes this year after starting his pro career in Denmark, hails from Newtown, Conn., and was at home the morning of the shooting that resulted in the deaths of 26 students, teachers and staff.

“What could we do to give the town a voice and help the people heal?” Tracy told Steven Goff of the Washington Post. “There’s a lot of negativity in the media about Newtown and we want to show the other side. It was therapeutic for us too. We are grieving. Everyone has been grieving.”
