The Own Goal with Former MLS Defender, Jared Watts

Apr 21, 2021

As the Major League Soccer (MLS) season gets underway, former defender, Jared Watts (Colorado Rapids and Houston Dynamo) joins the podcast today to talk about own goals. An own goal in soccer can be one of the most devastating things for a player to have to go through in the course of a game — especially with the stakes being high.

Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, listen as Jared and I talk about own goals in soccer and in life. Jared is gracious to allow us to break down and analyze his own goal in a Colorado Rapids home game back in 2017, when he turns to pass the ball back to Goalkeeper Tim Howard, but ends up putting the ball in the back of the net. Jared and I talk about the redemptive lessons to be learned and the ways that we can overcome ‘own goal’ moments.

From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 10-15 min) podcast with Rev Brad Kenney, Founder and Executive Director of Soccer Chaplains United and Volunteer Chaplain to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer.

Rev Brad and occasional guests touch on various issues around the topics of faith, family, and football (soccer).
