WHO WE ARE: Contender #13- Austin

Tad Christie, pictured above was selected from last year's Austin Team to join the US National Team at the Homeless World Cup. Tad took full advantage of the opportunity and trained hard, improving himself as a player. As he forges ahead, Tad, though he is no longer homeless, has whole new set of challenges. He is working presently in his spare time with Craig Hutcheson to continue the Austin program which Sabelyn Pussman started a year and half ago. Tad was featured last winter in People Magazine. The article details the story of the impact that Street Soccer USA had on his life.

Austin returns this year with a new group of dedicated individuals. Coach Craig Hutcheson is getting the youth of Austin involved. Last season youth team Lake County United sponsored SSUSA on their jerseys.
