Go behind the scenes at our September cover shoot of Tony Sanneh, former World Cup soccer player and founder of The Sanneh Foundation, which helps youth reach their potential and goals through soccer. Learn about The Sanneh Foundation at www.thesannehfoundation.org.
After 18 years of playing professional soccer, Tony Sanneh retired from the sport in 2010. But “retired” is hardly a word that describes this world soccer great. A native of St. Paul, Minn., he established The Sanneh Foundation, a nonprofit organization, in 2003; its purpose is to provide positive environments – including soccer clinics and camps – for urban youth in America. We caught up with Sanneh by phone to find out more about his projects and passions.
