Needless to say, Tim Howard one of Mack’s heroes. I would ask Mack if he wanted to be like Tim someday and his response was invariable, “Yeah, but better!” That is the confidence you need to be a goalkeeper!
We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the soccer world. We have received letters and emails from more than a half-dozen current MLS goalkeepers and even more coaches. We had no idea, but Mack was and is a part of a very special group, the Goalkeepers Union. The GKU has now taken us in as their own and we are so humbled and thankful.
