Source: DC United The youngest player in modern professional team sports! Wow! I am not sure this will bring soccer to the masses in the states, but it should (I hope) give the sport a face and some much needed boost in popularity. I will surely have to get down to DC to see him play! I used to play soccer, from city rec. league up until middle school, then I had knee surgeries, that kind of slows ya down, ya know. I still love soccer though, it will be great seeing how Adu fairs.
