Hi everyone, my name is Brendan Murphy. I am an 18 year old boy, and much like every other kid my age, I love to play sports. Unfortunately, I have suffered from multiple concussions, and therefor I have been prohibited from playing soccer for the rest of my life. At first, this was a very tough pill to swallow for me. Soccer was my passion and livelihood, and to be told that I could never play again was devastating. However, I was recently informed about an amazing organization called United Kingdom Soccer Development or UKSD for short.UKSD was started by Lee Docherty "Doc" who came overseas from England with the dream to build a soccer organization that served the youth. "Doc" currently resides in Hyannis, MA, working with a small staff to help empower youth and help educate participants about social issues such as homelessness, hunger, and substance abuse through soccer. To me, UKSD is a very important organization that holds a lot of value because soccer is my passion in this world.
