Rapids Podcast: Irwin '90% sure that he was done'

Keeper on life in the lower leagues before taking MLS by storm

Goalkeeper Clint Irwin has been one of the finds of the 2013 season, but in this week's Rapids Podcast he talks of how he very nearly quit the sport as he struggled to break into MLS.

"I was probably 90% sure that I was going to be done," he said. "But then I just had a feeling inside, like, that I didn't want to be that guy who was looking back and saying 'oh, I could've made it'."

Hosts David Lindholm and Richard Fleming are also joined by Rapids Senior Director of Youth Development, Brian Crookham, as the new Academy season gets underway.
