It took Caskey all of 10 minutes in his first Sounders game to become a fan favorite. He always plays hard. Even when he's having an off game, his body language never changes. (Bonus points: He's no diver.) Great to see him spend some time with the kids at the Boys & Girls Club.

My favorite Sounder. Hard worker, creative and with a good shot!
