Schmetzer featured at Soccer Seattle Style

www.SoccerSeattleStyle.com is back with a new look and new content too.

The latest is a feature on the life and times of Seattle native and longtime Sounders player and coach Brian Schmezter.

"One of the most important things I learned from Alan Hinton is that he liked to use the phrase “my players.” The words “these are my players” sounds so simple but in saying that he always meant what he said. Whenever he said those words and however he said those words it always made his players feel special. Coach Hinton was always proud of the guys who played for him.

I stole those words and sentiments from Alan. So, all those guys (all of the Sounder players) are my guys. When the team does well the players get the accolades and when the team does poorly the coach takes responsibility."
