They come from Norway, Germany, Sweden and France. They began playing soccer as little boys.

Now, years later, the men are teammates on the nationally ranked Golden Eagles soccer squad. Their goal is to help take the Cal State LA soccer program to new heights, while pursuing graduate and undergraduate degrees in business and kinesiology.
