Tukwila player and former refugee to try out for Seattle Sounders

An ongoing civil war forced him from his Somali home and into a Kenyan refugee camp. But it didn’t steal his soccer dreams. For 14 years, he lived with 10 others in a hut smaller than a studio apartment and had to walk 10 miles without shoes to get running water. But it didn’t steal his soccer dreams. Cultural and language barriers have been a daily struggle since he came to America five years ago. But it hasn’t stolen his soccer dreams. If anything, Mohamed Mohamud’s resolve — his dream of a better life and one day playing soccer professionally — has only been strengthened. That dream began at the refugee camp in Hagadera, Kenya, where Mohamud’s soccer skills began to take shape. On Jan. 29-30 at Starfire Sports Complex, Mohamud’s dream could be realized, when he represents the Somali Soccer Stars, of the Tukwila-based East African Youth Sports organization, during a tryout for the Seattle Sounders.
