Our girls soccer teams received a special visit with local soccer star, Chandler Hoffman today.  Chandler talked about his journey from B’ham to MLS, his style of play as a forward, strengths/weaknesses, players he’s had the pleasure of playing with as a pro, dealing with adversity and the hard work/dedication it takes to compete and just make it to the highest level.  Hoffman’s playing career highlights include:

  • Attending OMHS, winning AL Gatorade player of the year twice,
  • Becoming the first Alabama player to ever play at UCLA,
  • Being named a M.A.C. Hermann Trophy semifinalist,
  • Earning All-American honors during his college career,
  • Getting drafted in the first round of Major League Soccer, 13th overall becoming the first Alabama-born player ever drafted by MLS,
  • Playing for the Philadelphia Union, LA Galaxy and the Houston Dynamo
  • Playing currently for the Real Monarchs in the USL, an affiliate club of Real Salt Lake of MLS

The girls and coaching staff really appreciated him stopping by Hoover this afternoon.
