Soccer? No, Seminary

Thanks to Oddwalk friend Ricky for calling this story to our attention - Ricky says:
Check this story. MLS player retires to enter seminary in Maryland. He was on a good team too.

The now-former professional soccer player had this to say:

"After years of discernment, I feel strongly that the Lord has called me to become a priest in the Catholic Church," Hilgenbrinck said. "Playing professional soccer has been my passion for a long time and I feel blessed to have successfully lived out this dream. My passion now is to do the will of God, which is wanting only what He wants for me. Though I will miss the game of soccer, I know that I am moving on to something much greater."
