    Born in 74 Sounders Legend: Jimmy McAlister continues to pave the way for future Sounders

    “The fans have always been the focal point of the Seattle Sounders,” he said. “From the time the players used to run [carnations] into the crowd [in honor of] the support they give; It always amazes me.” Along with McAlister's own development in the sport, the growth of soccer in the Pacific Northwest was also prominent during his Sounders tenure. “When we started, the game wasn't that big of a deal, so guys like Dave Gillett ('74-'80), Adrian Webster ('74-'79), and Tommy Jenkins ('76-'79), went into the schools and really, really worked the community hard to make it what it is now,” he said.
