Gerson Echeverry takes Carson down memory lane

RGVFC Head Coach Gerson Echeverry and Carson have some laughs as they revisit Echeverry’s playing career and soccer journey.

In another quarantine conversation for The Other Football Podcast, Carson A. Merk was joined by RGVFC Head Coach Gerson Echeverry. The two shared some laughs and some stories as they revisited Echeverry’s playing career that took him to places like Colombia and Hershey, Pennsylvania (They trained at the amusement park!).

For the USL Championship fans, Echeverry recalls playing for current Pittsburgh Riverhounds’s boss Bob Lilley back in Hershey and he also explains what the COVID-19 delay allowed him and his staff to do tactically with the players.

Also in the conversation, you can find out:

  • What soccer legend did Echeverry meet while they were power-washing outside their house in Spain?
  • Is it Taylor Ham or Pork Roll?
  • What former NBA player ended Echeverry’s basketball ambitions with a crossover?
  • Who is more famous at Seton Hall, Gerson or Tony Soprano?
