After graduating from high school last summer, 19-year-old Philadelphia Union Academy and YSC Academy grad Darius Lewis made a bold move to turn down attractive D1 college scholarship offers in the U.S. to pursue his pro dreams.
After a challenging six months back home in Florida, the Port St. Lucie native’s dogged pursuit of his dream eventually led to an offer from KÍ Klaksvík in the Faroe Islands Premier League.
Lewis talks about his journey so far in the first episode of my new podcast, where I’ll be exploring the stories of players, coaches, fans and others involved in the beautiful game and the many places it has taken them.
