“This league is something that is so long overdue,” said Barrett. “I’ve been playing for almost 20 years. When I was growing up, it was the U.S. National Team or nothing. Now, PR7s is creating a pathway where a 17-year-old Danny Barrett knows a path to reach a professional level and the national team.”
