The Thunder and the Hurricane

Posted on March 1, 2016

In 2006, my son’s U-16 soccer team, the Lakeview Thunder, returned after Katrina to finish out what would be a brave and gnarly season. Only three of the players had homes that weren’t damaged or destroyed. This essay was ten years in the writing, and I’m deeply grateful that it found a home in Oxford American. With illustrations by Donald Baechler. Read the essay here.
