Fans of the Columbus Crew are undoubtedly familiar with the “circle 15” emblem. This book is about getting to know the man behind the number.
Kirk Urso may have only been a member of the Columbus Crew for several months before his tragic passing from an undetected congenital heart defect, but he made his time count. In Kirk Urso: Forever Massive, Steve Sirk collects stories and insights from the players, coaches, and staff of the 2012 Columbus Crew, who knew Kirk as a leader, listener, friend, straight-faced humorist, and a constant source of positive inspiration. These stories, presented in the players’ own words, reveal Urso as the Crew knew him. (Hint: Most of the interviews featured smiles and laughter.)
All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Crew Soccer Foundation’s Kirk Urso Memorial Fund, which supports congenital heart defect research.
