The Dreamer

Gael lives for football, I've probably said it over and over again.  But what else is there to say about this kid that thinks of nothing but this game.  There is only one thing he wants to be when he grows up - a football player.  Now he is aiming higher and bigger.  Being an Azkal is not enough anymore, he wants to be a professional and play in the professional leagues he sees his favorite football stars playing in.  While many times his football dreams get in the way of homework, weekend plans and sleeping in, it is these same dreams that have taught him some of the most important life lessons that take many a lifetime to learn.

It isn't all about scoring goals and winning.

Hard work pays off.

Hard work can also be fun.

Every person on your team counts.

Dreams do come true.
