I started playing goalie when I was around nine-years-old. And then I go on and off as a striker. I am still pretty good on my feet but I grew to love being a goalie.
In secondary school, my classmates will kick the ball at me after school hours, and then I will crash at home only to wake in the middle of the night (and don’t ask me if I felt sleepy in class).
At service (after college), I had the most intensive training as a goalie, representing OYO state team at the NYSC games (I even got the best goalie award on camp)
Somewhere in the middle of all these I played in church soccer teams too.
It’s being many years I left service, these days I will admit I am a bit soft, but I keep the body going with pick-ups and soccer league in town.
Thanks to Taiwo, Lenny, Andrew, and Greyson, who featured in at least one episode.
