Reynolds Makes USL Team of the Week, Joins This Is Silly!
Defender Sean Reynolds was named to the USL Team of the Week after his performance last weekend. Reynolds made a sliding tackle below in the 81st minute Saturday to help preserve the win for the home side.
Sean Reynolds joined the This Is Silly! podcast earlier this week. During the nearly 2-hour long podcast, Reynolds and the hosts talked about a wide variety of subjects including, the youth soccer system in the U.S., St. Louis restaurants, the time Reynolds almost fought his coach and much more.
It’s definitely a quality listen, but be warned that there is some NSFW language.
