This episode Jeff and I dive right into what Generation Footy actually is and the grand vision behind the brand. We go in-depth about the current role of the media in the US Soccer environment and discuss ideal situations for both player and media member to grow the game together. We also speak about the approach high school players should be taking in regards to getting recruited and finding the right school/program for them! Thanks for listening and please be sure to leave us a comment/review and let us know your thoughts and questions!
