My name is Michael McDermott and I started this site in the fall of 2006. My intent was to become a central gathering place for everything soccer in the 757. The past four years or so, I have been able to only cover the high school season in the spring. I'm happy to inform everyone, that 757 Soccer is getting back to the original intentions of the site! Look for more coverage throughout the year.
My dad was Air Force. In 1970, we were stationed at RAF Chicksands in England. At the age of eight, I started kicking a ball around with my brothers and other American kids on the base. Over the next three years, my passion and skill for the beautiful game grew steadily! While in England, I was fortunate to see England vs Wales at the old Wembley Stadium, as well as seeing Georgie Best, Bobby Charlton, and Denis Law play for Man United! In addition, I was able to watch Martin Chivers (Tottenham), Peter Lorimar (Leeds) and Alan Ball (Arsenal)!
