My name is Alec Zimmerman, and I am the biggest soccer fan that you will ever meet. I realized my passion for the sport when I first played it when I was six years old, and it has been a major part of my life ever since. Whether I am playing soccer, watching soccer, or playing soccer video games, I always enjoy soccer.

When I first started playing soccer, I played on a team at Lanier Soccer Association (LSA). I continued to play at LSA every year until I started college. Additionally, I played for my high school all four years I was there. Many of my current friends are people I have met through soccer, and one of my closest friends is one of the guys I met on my first-ever team.

When I was 11, my best friend at the time was also a soccer player. Unfortunately, he moved away because of his mom’s job. He moved away before I had a cell phone, so I had no way to stay in contact with him. However, I knew he was a fan of the English soccer team Manchester United, and since I did not have a favorite team yet, I decided to become a United fan to keep the friendship alive in its own way. Since then, I went from being a casual United fan to a super fan. I have several United jerseys, t-shirts, scarves, and other memorabilia. I asked my family to let me visit Manchester, England as a high school graduation present, so I could see the city I grew to love through soccer, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

So, if you ever have any questions about soccer, I am the guy to ask!
