Soccer Stories: Skylar Thomas Canadian Centerback & Entrepreneur
New Episode Drop! We're excited to release our interview with professional soccer player and KickDeck founder, Skylar Thomas. First off, Skylar is a great guy; fun, relaxed, and extremely friendly. He's also engaged, thoughtful and his story is one I have wanted to share since I started our interviews on CPLFever. In fact, I have been wanting to interview Skylar now for a very long time. He first caught my attention when he played for CPL team, Valour FC and then more recently as the founder behind the amazing product – KickDeck a valuable tool for young footballers looking to take their training and game to the next level. For those of you who are unfamiliar with KickDeck, KickDeck is your personal trainer in a deck of cards. By using the deck (shuffle, deal, and train through 4 different categories) you can build your own custom workouts that will unlock your full potential. Learn more about KickDeck here: http://cplfever.ca/kickdeck During this interview that lasted about an hour, we chat to Skylar about: His upbringing and how he developed his love for soccer His current season with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds How he developed his entrepreneurial spirit and how he ended up founding KickDeck How he balances being a professional athlete and entrepreneur running a highly successful business. What his day looks like as a professional footballer Mindset and how it's helped him in everyday life Advice for young athletes who aspire to go pro And of course, the always fun rapid-fire questions where we get to know our guests on a more personal level! Skylar Thomas has an incredibly fascinating story and one that we are so excited to share with you today. Some of my favourite moments of the interview have to do with his mindset and how he developed a great attitude that has served him well not only in professional soccer but also as an entrepreneur. When you hear him speak about his passion and commitment to helping youth athletes first through his own coaching program, UVU Soccer Training, and now through KickDeck (by providing solutions to fundamental problems like the lack of direction when training alone that plague young athletes) it's inspiring. So go ahead and watch the interview below. Check out the blog post for complete timestamps.

Tommy Wheeldon Jr Interview: From Player to Coach of Cavalry FC | Excellent Advice For Young Canadian Soccer Players Wanting To Play Pro
Interview with Tommy Wheeldon Jr The last couple of weeks have been really busy, and so I'm so happy to finally be able to release this interview with Tommy Wheeldon Jr. To be honest, I still cannot believe that my Dad and I had the wonderful opportunity to interview Tommy Wheeldon Jr. – and have watched it over and over again! The first time I ever spoke with Tommy was during an early-round Island Games press conference where Cavalry FC played against FC Edmonton. We were able to set up an interview with Tommy Wheeldon Jr via email after connecting on with him on Twitter. During the press conference, I asked Tommy what he had thought of Elliot Simmons' performance that game. When answering my question, Tommy gave me such a detailed answer – he talked more about Elliot and their decision to bring him to the football club, his passing, and probing. I then asked a follow-up question, and he then expanded on Elliot’s role in the club as their “regista” – their quarterback. Something that I really loved about his answer was that he really took the time to explain the “why” behind his decisions. So we jumped when we got the chance to have a one-on-one with Tommy Wheeldon Jr. During the interview, Tommy was thoughtful, jovial and shared a lot of golden nuggets. His explanations, made me see things in different ways, and some of the things I had to really “think” about. I had so many questions for Tommy, and because his answers were so interesting and it made me think about MORE QUESTIONS, I could have kept talking to him for hours. One of the things that I love about Tommy is that when he talks about football you can hear the passion and his love of the game so much. In this interview, he explains that his love of soccer came later in his life than most kids. That really surprised me because of the passion and love he has for the game, but it was interesting to see his development; first as a young boy spending time in the football dressing room with his father, to his own playing career, his apprenticeship at 16 and earning his first coaching license at the early age of 17, to the present day and what are his hopes and dreams are for the future. We covered many things during the hour (see the timestamp below for the details) and some of the highlights of the interview were talking Everton and EPL football with Tommy, his recruitment strategy, and what he looks for in his players (intangible skills and the personality test) and his advice for footballers who are on trial. I personally really enjoyed him dissecting the parts of the game down as well as asking him for his thoughts on what made Spain's Golden Generation so good (the reason I fell in love with football) and getting to know him on a more personal level – one of my favourite parts is asking him some fun RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS which you definitely have to check out! As a young kid with aspirations to play professional soccer, I loved talking football with Tommy because I wanted to know more about his perspective on football – seriously, just the way he talks about it, you can't help but be drawn in and all you want to do is listen. So sit down, grab a snack (I recommend some popcorn – my favourite) and enjoy this interview with Cavalry FC Head Coach and General Manager, Tommy Wheeldon Jr.

Soccer Stories: Jan-Michael Williams - The Most Capped Trinidad & Tobago Player
Today, I’m very excited to be releasing what we at CPLFever think could be one of our best (and most fun interviews yet) with none other than goalkeeping coach, Jan-Michael Williams. Now, something that I just love about Jan is how friendly he is. Jan is really easy going, a joy to be around and talk with. On top of being a super nice guy, his career has been filled with incredible moments many of which we touched on and loved hearing about. During the interview you get to see on display, just how great a fellow Jan is. We loved covering the various points in his career including, all the caps he has had for his country of Trinidad and Tobago.  We also touched on his philosophies on the beautiful game and life in general – mainly how he tries to live the Japanese concept of “Kaizen.” As he says, our interview may have been the most in-depth interview he's ever done and yes, some of our questions seem to come out of left field (especially my rapid-fire questions) BUT that's what we like, getting to know the players in and outside of soccer! This interview was such a pleasure to be a part of and I want to thank Jan again for coming on and speaking with us.  To know more about Jan, you can follow him here on:  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/janmichael21/ Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/janmichael.williams.5 Now sit back and have a watch/listen to the interview available both on YouTube and our podcast. Check out more about our Jan-Michael Williams interview on the blog.

Riobol Interview: Unique Training Tool For Improving Your Touch In Soccer + A Whole Lotta Other Soccer Stuff including Landon Donovan
We had the opportunity to sit down with the co-founders of RIOBOL, Matthew Folsom and Elliot Fauske and talk about everything RIOBOL. RIOBOL is a Brazilian technical training ball that is a size 2 ball but as heavy as a size 5 soccer ball. Since I started working with the Riobol and testing it out, I'm super impressed at how it's helped with my touch and how I'm seeing improvements in just a short period of time.  As a soccer player, you want to be able to create.  Creativity on the ball is one of your best assets and in order to have the freedom to CREATE, players need the confidence and the ability to control the ball.  The mission for RIOBOL is to develop that instinctive ball control and this is what we talk to with the co-owners of RIOBOL in this hour and a half long interview. In this interview, you'll discover how RIOBOL was created, the science behind RIOBOL, we talk about US soccer, world soccer as well as how to best use your RIOBOL to improve touch, precision, control and more... PLUS we also delve into the founders stories' and how they fell in love with the beautiful game. Matthew Folsom also talks about his experience rooming with Landon Donovan.  It's a great interview where we go deep into bettering yourself as a soccer player.

Soccer Stories: Ezequiel Carrasco Interview: Our First Keeper Interview
Today, I am incredibly pleased to release this interview with York 9 keeper, of Chilean descent, Ezequiel Carrasco and I have to say that this may be one of my most favourite interviews yet! The 17 year old goalkeeper (that's right, 17) was recently signed by York 9 and made his debut in the Island Games Tournament against the Halifax Wanderers. Ezequiel is one of the friendliest, most down to earth and humble people I have ever met. As we chatted with him, you are immediately impressed by him; he is mature, disciplined for his age and because of this, you can see why he has achieved so much in such a short period of time. His attitude is stellar and he has so much gratitude for the people who have helped him get to where he is today. Interestingly enough, Ezequiel is our first goalkeeper interview and we learned so much from him. Being a midfielder, it was so interesting to sit down with him and get his “eye in the sky” point of view as keepers see the game so differently than any other player on the field. One of the most fascinating parts of the interview are the specialized drills and equipment that keepers are put through to hone their reflexes and reaction time. If you are a keeper or have a young, up and coming keeper, this is definitely an interview not to be missed. So sit back and catch the interview with one of the youngest, talented signings in the CPL. Expect great things from Ezequiel. We can't wait to see more of him next season.

Soccer Stories: Ben Fisk | Spain, Ireland, to Pacific FC Captain and First-Ever Signing for Atletico Ottawa
Ben has such a great story and not only has his football career been fantastic (and one that I hope to emulate) but his football career has taken him to some beautiful places in the world where he's been able to live, experience, and soak in the culture. As an Irish citizen myself, I was very interested in his time playing in Ireland with the Candy Stripes. And as a fan of Spanish football, I loved hearing about his time in Spain, and playing with teammate Luis Alberto who now plays in Seria A. Not only does his current team, Atletico Ottawa has a strong Spanish connection with the parent club, Atletico Madrid and Mista, the coach but I was really impressed at how Ben became fluent in Spanish to help his career (some of you know I have been learning Spanish for the last year for the very same reason!) During the conversation, we covered many things… We covered his upbringing, his career abroad, his Nova Scotian connection, and even his dog Vigo (he's so cute!) but I think one of my biggest takeaways from talking with Ben is this: He is extremely positive. He has an incredible attitude and a very strong belief that he can succeed. He has the mindset of a winner, a competitor, and a top athlete. He also said that he worked hard and always game back to the game that he loved, there are no shortcuts. One thing he said early in the interview is that his parents taught him, “Don't worry about the problem, just worry about the solution…” – This is something I have been taught since I was really young and I loved hearing that Ben believes and lives the same thing. This is an interview not to be missed. Ben is giving and insightful with his answers and his story is one of dedication and resilience. He is somebody who young players should watch and learn from, I know I will! Check out the timestamped video on the blog post: http://cplfever.ca/ben-fisk-interview/

Soccer Stories: Ibra Sanoh From West Guinea to the Record Goalscorer at Holland College
Ibra Sanoh is one of this year's new signings for the HFX Wanderers and he was an absolute phenom of a striker last year at Holland College in PEI.   Ibra came to Canada from West Guinea (a French-speaking part of Africa) as his father specifically wanted to send him to an English-speaking area of Canada to study.   Once in PEI he had to adapt to a more physical style of soccer in Canada.  And yet, when it comes to stats, he dominated his league, like his record of 101 goals scored in 70 games! Ibra has a solid head on his shoulders and some great advice to give for young soccer players who want to follow in his footsteps. One of the interesting things that came up in the interview was his decision to take some time off the soccer pitch and specifically bulk up. He knew he needed to get stronger to take his game to the next level, and he worked extra-hard to achieve the results. After spending about an hour chatting, you can easily see that Ibra is one of the nicest and most genuine people who gave very thoughtful answers to our numerous questions!   All in all, this interview is worth a solid listen for all fans of soccer, and especially for HFX Wanderers Fans.

Soccer Stories: YouTuber & Striker William Akio on his Journey from Refugee to Going Pro
Last week we had the opportunity to interview Canadian D1 athlete, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) striker, William Akio. Most likely, you are already familiar with the name William Akio as not only he making quite the name for himself as a soccer player but also as a YouTuber sharing his soccer journey towards going pro. We had a great conversation with William. This is an excellent interview, not only to discover the persistence and dedication needed to be a top elite athlete, but to learn how to navigate the journey through college soccer. William Akio is one of the fastest D1 strikers, and Jack has been doing some of his speed workouts which you should check out on William's YouTube channel In the interview, we go through his coming to Canada at a young age from a refugee camp after leaving Kenya, his love for soccer and what he learned from watching African soccer legend, Didier Drogba. William has an incredible work-ethic and he answers how he is working hard to get to where he is (playing with D1 soccer university UTRGV) – and tells us about his plans to play soccer as a professional.

Soccer Stories: Joao Morelli the New Number 10 for the HFX Wanderers
Here’s the deal, ever since the Wanderers signed Joao Morelli, I’ve been so excited to see him play. When they first made the announcement, I did what I’m sure every other person did - I checked out his highlight reels.  After watching them, I couldn’t believe that he was coming to play for us, I was so happy. So last week when we had the chance to sit down with him and talk about his soccer journey (his career in Brazil, England and Estonia before coming to Halifax) I thought this was just awesome! Interestingly enough, Joao Morelli is also one of the first people I’ve interviewed who plays the same position as me, a CAM (when I’m not an inverted winger) and I couldn’t wait to talk to him more about being a number 10!  Joao has some great advice for other number 10's. We also talked about how he thrives under pressure, what we can expect from him this year with the Wanderers and I think there is a lot to learn from his story about commitment, sacrifice, and what it takes to play professionally. So grab a seat and have a listen to this interview. Warning, we laugh a lot.

Always smiling, he’s incredibly genuine, thoughtful, and giving of his time. He talks about his work with his coach at Vaughn Azzurri in Ontario, and his move to the CPL mid-season with Stephen Hart and the HFX Wanderers.  He also talks about his relationship with Edmonton FC coach Jeff Paulus.  It was a great time and I’m thankful that we had the time to learn more about his remarkable journey to the Canadian Premier League.
