Fellipe Souza tooks some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions for us. While playing 13 games for the Stars last season he provided a spark and a hustle that was fun to watch.
What are a couple of your highlights playing your rookie season in the MASL?
The highlight of my rookie season in the MASL was without a doubt my first game with the Tacoma stars. It wasn't only my first game but I was also blessed to have a good game that day, scoring my first goal and contributing with an assist.
What are you looking forward to the most in this upcoming season?
I look forward to seeing a successful team, fighting for each other and working hard for our objectives. I believe we have great players that can lead us to success alongside the new additions to the team.
How are you getting ready during the off-season?
This off-season I have been working with some local teams to maintain the ball work, and also doing a lot of strengthening and conditioning outside the field.
What do you think enabled your transition from outdoor to indoor to go so smoothly?
Before moving outdoor I played futsal, while still living in Brazil. The futsal helped me differentiate myself from some outdoor players for many reasons, and I believe coming back to a smaller field such as indoor soccer was easier based on my background.
When was that moment that you fell in love with soccer?
As a Brazilian, soccer was always part of my life, I grew up watching and playing it. However, the most remarkable moment that made me dream of the sport was in 2002, when Brazil won the World Cup.
