I am officially running for VP of USSF

Usually an announcement like this is accompanied by a formal Press Release written by some PR firm or another. I don't really think that is what is needed from me. 

5 years ago, if you would have asked me "Hey Chris, what are the odds that you will run for USSF Vice President in 2019"? I would have laughed... you would have laughed... we would have laughed together. The notion that I would be trying to be one of the leaders of soccer in this nation would have been hilarious. 

Here we are though. 

Every step of my time as a player, my growth as a coach, start of being an educator, and my reluctant acceptance of roles as a leader at the club, league, and state level in this game has led me to here. I have included my request for letters of nomination from the leadership of members of the USSF National Council and the Athlete Council. 

Thank you all for your support and I hope to be able to continue to articulate my positions on how the USSF can improve the game we all love in this country. 

Thank you,
Chris Kessell
