Teddy’s Soccer Valentine

Quincy Amarikwa, aka “Q”

forward, Colorado Rapids

Why is he Teddy’s Soccer Valentine? Quincy has to be one of the Rapids’ quickest players off the ball. He hustles every play, and puts in 100% every match he sees time in. He majored in biological sciences at UC Davis. Overall he has a attractive smile, and is very interactive with us supporters.

What would their Soccer Valentine date be? We’d start off with a quick afternoon footy session, then get all dressed up for dinner. I would probably shoot for something like Elway’s Steakhouse in Cherry Creek, then would grab some late drinks in the up-and-coming LoHi neighborhood. Now the next question would be, “Q would you marry me?” I like to move quick.

Folan doesn’t seem to be on good ground ready to start the pre-season as he hasn’t attended any training sessions with the club and is still overseas. Earlier this week club officials said they care about the players attending training, and aren’t worried about anyone else.  read more…
