Kevin "Soapy" Souter interview

Kevin Souter continues the soccer version of Cinderella. He comes from Scotland to play for a small college in Iowa. Finds his way to the open tryouts and impresses the coaches. Gets signed to a contract, does well on the reserve team but get hurt. Works his way back from injury, again shows well in reserve team matches. Eventually makes his way into the 18 man roster on game day in San Jose and Houston. He is again on the roster when LA comes into town. Kevin comes in late in the game and becomes famous for stealing the ball from his idol (some guy named Beckham).

After that game I talked to him and told I would have to do another interview when he got his first goal in the next week or so. As promised, I stopped him last Friday after practice to talk again. He is begining to become a regular feature.

I had never heard about Soapy Soutar or the Oor Wullie cartoon so I had to go look it up. I could not find an image of Soapy so please leave a comment with a link if you know where I can find it.
