Hello! I am going to talk about Tim Howard. He was a really good goalie for USA in the world cup. But what where I want start, is the beginning. Ok, so Tim was very poor. He had a mom and a brother. His brothers name is Chris. Tim was born on March 16 1979 and was raised in New Jersey. Thats where, (as the book about Tim says) where he got his goalkeeping started. Tim’s family (his father was a black truck driver and moved out when Tim was a toddler) lived in a small apartment just a little far from a pizza parlor and not much else. It was a rough life for Tim but he managed.
Soon soccer came up. Tim wanted to play soccer. So he got to play. But sometimes his mother worried. Most people that play come to soccer in fancy cars. But only Tim had a very rusted car and that was not cool. Even when his mother dropped him off, she tried to avoid other peoples eyes.
His own privet soccer academy.
Tim’s mother decided to take Tim to GK1 club. So he could spend a few hours with Tim Mulqueen. He was the goalkeeping coach of the Rutgers University’s men’s team. When Tim announced (The Tim that had the weird last name) that he was going to do goal keeping training for youth players, everybody started signing up. One session cost 25$. Tim’s mother had enough money for one session, but that was all that she could afford. So Tim went and when he got there coach said get in goal Tim. So he did. He started firing balls he saved one and another came back in its place. So when practice was done, Coach Mulch (thats what they called him) Said ‘Miss Howard, you need to bring Tim back’. Well they said that she looked sad. Why? Not enough money. So Mulch said bring him back and no charge, no money to pay with ‘cause’ I don’t care about the money. So he came once a week to practice.
I not finished with the story so, there will be lots more to hear! Bye!
