Number 10: Margaret Lindsay

Margaret fights as hard as she laughs. Both abilities served her well in overcoming drug addiction, codependency, and homeless. More than that Margaret reconnected to her family, and has worked for three years now as a custodian at Johnson C. Smith College. Playing soccer connected her back to her glory days running track in high school.

Ask Margaret about the soccer team, and she likes to talk not about the games, but a team hike we took. We climbed a small foothill, which she calls a mountain. "It was a mountain, Lawrence." She says with her hearty laugh. "I didn't think I could do it, but I did climb it didn't I?" Oh yes you did Margaret, and that's why you are a number 10.

We ask you to be a number 10. Help us keep our promise to be their four our players, but being a leader on and off the field. Donate 10 dollars or more to Street Soccer USA. Donate and read about other number 10s at
