It's been a long journey for Kyle Bekker, who grew up in Oakville and was at the time the highest-ever drafted Canadian when TFC selected him 3rd overall in the MLS Draft back in 2013.

Since joining Hamilton's Forge FC there hasn't been much he and the club haven't won, and he's looking to continue to raise that bar for the next generation of players coming up. "Legacy" is significant for the club's first and only captain.

He knows he won't be able to play at this level forever, and "father time is catching up to him."

Off-season training is one of the places where he has focused his energy as of late, finding "stillness" in being present with his surroundings and the people in his inner circle.

As he's gotten older, he's realized he can't simply get into shape during training camp. 

He's even managed to finally finish his Communications Degree after leaving Boston College early to "pursue his dreams."

Forge FC will play their first game of the season on April 15th, at 4 pm against Cavalry FC.
