Weston McKennie is one of soccer's most unique talents. Even on the world's biggest stage, the 24-year-old American stands out in the middle of the pitch with his all-action style, covering every blade of grass, arriving first to every contested ball and occasionally looking like a one-man midfield out there.
But Weston would be the first to admit that his meteoric rise to playing for Italy's biggest club and representing his country on the world’s stage is grounded in the help, commitment and sacrifice of teammates, family, friends and coaches.
To best tell Weston's story and to build on our “Peanuts: Official Sponsor of Teamwork” campaign, NPB partnered with The18 to connect the dots by bringing together the U.S. star, his father John Sr., older brother John Jr., nephew Darian Powell and longtime coach/friend David Mueller.
