In Chapter X: "Diego didn't have an ACL!" former athletic trainer and eventual strength & conditioning coach, Jaime Rojas, shares his experiences from all four years with the Miami Fusion!
Jaime shares what it was like working for the Fusion for all four of those years and how he was baptized by fire immediately with team.
Jaime also discusses several memorable injury/recovery stories featuring Jeff Cassar, Ian Bishop, and a Velociraptor named "Jim Rooney"!
In 2001, despite putting together one of the best seasons in MLS history (at that point and arguably since), MLS made the decision to fold both the Fusion and their Florida neighbors, the MLS original franchise, Tampa Bay Mutiny.
While MLS soccer has returned to Miami in the form of David Beckham's Inter Miami, much has been discussed of "what could've been?" Had the Miami Fusion been allowed to stay and build. Indeed, what WOULD a Miami Fusion look like in 2023?
This podcast tells the story of the Miami Fusion through the voices of those who actually lived it. 25 interviews across 25 episodes charting the good, the bad, and the unbelievable.
