Denzel Slager started playing soccer at five years old. It wasn’t until his twenties that he learned what the struggle was really about. After rising through the ranks in his native Holland, he hit the big leagues — a contract with Coventry City. Just as everything was starting to go his way, it all fell apart. Two years later, he’s in Los Angeles playing for LA Galaxy II with side hustles including modeling, reality TV, and launching his own clothing line. He stops by our studio to tell us about his amazing journey and the biggest lesson he’s learned along the way: "I think happiness is the most important. Otherwise you can't practice, you can't focus or anything." Listen to Denzel’s story here.
