Steve Clark: Should I Stay or Should I go?

That's the question that young keeper Steve Clark is facing. Keepin' It Real has learned that he has been offered a developmental position with the club. However, this could be a temporary spot as the team currently has an open spot and would keep a 4th keeper until another need comes along. Clark also has opportunities with a couple of USL-1 clubs.

When I spoke with Clark he was getting ready to head back to his native Michigan and to weigh the decision. Clark had a trial in Norway just before joining RSL in preseason, first in California, then Florida and now Charleston. Since he has been on the road for such an extended time he needs to take care of personal matters, and take some time to consider his options. He plans to consult with his agent, and a former coach and determine his best path.

"I know I can make it in professional soccer," Clark said and indicated that he just needs to pick the path that gives him the best opportunity.
