This Week's Question: How would you describe the current morale of your pro team?
Cyle Larin -- "The team has stuck together, and we are just trying to play well offensively and defensively every game. My level of play has been very well to this point, and I want to make sure it doesn't drop from here and just gets better every day."
George Fochive -- "The team is in a good state right now. We are committed to always training to play good football."
Tony Cascio -- "I think my team is off to a good start. Everyone is in a similar position since it is a new club to the league so it makes it a little easier to bond with the guys. My level of play has not been where I want it to be, so I need to focus on becoming more consistent and staying healthy so I can be ready when I am put into the game.
Andre Blake -- "We got off to a slow start, but the season is still very young. I was having a great preseason before I got hurt, and I am now just working hard to get back onto the field and start getting some playing time."
Sergio Campbell -- "The team morale is good. There are a bunch of my teammates that I felt an instant connection with and I am really happy for that. My team gets along well, and there is a good flow between players on the field. I think that for a rookie season I am happy with my play. I think I am getting better every practice, and I hope that in coming seasons I can step into a more important role."
Jossimar Sanchez (Defender for the Swedish Pro Team Nykopings BIS) -- "The team morale is high I would say. We possess a lot of young talent so I'm excited to see what we are able to accomplish this year. My level of play has been back on track of where I was before my injury. I feel better every training session, and I'm happy to be back in a defensive midfield position instead of the wing back role which I never got a great grasp on."
