To commemorate Black History Month, Soccer in the Streets’ spotlight introduces Toussaint McClure, Community Program Manager. Toussaint has been with Soccer in the Streets for nine months now, leaving his footprint both on and off the field
Atlanta native Tony Carter grew up playing nearly every sport made available to him. He played on the school basketball, baseball, and soccer teams, and joined friends in his neighborhood for games of pick-up basketball. Basketball – not soccer – was THE sport to play for kids in the area where he was raised, but Tony could not shake the love he was developing for the game of soccer.
Back in 2017, England native Jessica Charman was excited to be recruited to play in a fundraising soccer tournament. She signed up, encouraged her friends to donate, and eventually put on her gloves to play in goal for Team Great Britain in Soccer in the Streets’ Nations Cup. Little did she know her teammate, Phil Hill, was her future director.
