What They're Saying: Chris Clark

“I answered my phone, and it was a Montessori teacher and she goes, Chris, we really need you to come in and observe Caden, we think he has some socialization issues. I'm thinking, oh my gosh, what is going on. So I go there and of course it’s 15 degrees outside because it’s Minnesota, and he’s got his snowsuit, his snow boots on, and he’s in the far back of the playground.”

-- Chris Clark, father of 17-year-old New York Red Bulls phenom Caden Clark, on his young son playing soccer 1-v-1 with a schoolmate. His teachers saw socialization issues; his father saw his joy and love of soccer. (MLSSoccer.com)
