Off the pitch, what do you like to do for fun?
J.C.: “I like to hang out with friends. I also consider myself a family guy because I really like to do activities with my family. But, to be honest, what I like most is to be on the field improving my skills.”

Moe: “My time is mostly spent with family and friends. I also love to travel!”

Why did you start playing soccer?
Dion: “In England, it’s in our blood to play the game. Even more so since my Dad played professional for Tottenham and Ipswich, which was a huge factor, I think.”

Who or which team do you find your soccer inspiration?
Thilo: “The Spanish and German national teams inspired me when they won the World Cup the last few years. They played fast with a good structure and amazing combinations in the offensive. Also, the Spanish teams like FC Barcelona show a new way of playing soccer with great technique, skills and fast combinations.”

What excites you the most about playing for Med City FC?
J.C.: “Playing for Med City FC is an honor. Also, there is a special motivation for me because being part of the first roster for the team is something exciting. I think our team has a lot to win!”

Dion: “I’m looking forward to being able to play soccer all summer for a very exciting organization!”

Thilo: “First, it’s a great experience when you can help build a new team. The second reason is the coaches and general manager who gave me a really good feeling. Also, with Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine there are so many opportunities to practice and to become a better player. The last reason is the area. During my stay in Rochester, I began to like the city and its people, so I decided I want to learn more about Rochester and Minnesota.”

Moe: “I am excited to represent Rochester and also showcase the talent from this city.”
