He stopped playing and got to work...

Error message


(Tim, w/thanks to Taylor) Great story. After starting for Clemson for three years where he played alongside Oguchi Onyewu, Chase Hilgenbrinck spent a couple years playing professional futbol in Chile. After leaving Chile, he signed with MLS's New England Revolution and played a handful of games there.

The Revolution wanted to renew his contract, but Hilgenbrinck declined. He was off to seminary. Time to stop playing and get to work studying, worshipping, and praying. He wanted to play a little more soccer, first, but he read this sentence and it settled the matter for him: "Delayed obedience is disobedience."
