Crider Plays Soccer with Children While Stationed in the Marshall Islands

Former Kickers youth player and recent Naval Academy graduate Matthew Crider is a big hit with the children on Marshall Islands. The children call out his name every day after work and he spends time playing the beautiful game before riding his bike back to the barracks.

Matthew who graduated in 2018 has been busy building evacuation shelters and rain capture and treatment systems on the Pacific island. We love to see our former players out in the world making a difference. Thank you for your service Matthew!
