Josh Gatt; "My Goal is to make US Soccer Notice

on .

TWO YEARS AGO Joshua Gatt was one of the fastest-rising stars of American soccer. Thanks to his blazing speed and tenacious nature, the Michigan native rose from relative obscurity in the second tier of Austria to becoming a champion in Norway and a member of the U.S. national team. Then it all came crashing down. Following a June 2013 match against Saprsborg, Gatt was scheduled to meet up with the U.S. national team for the Gold Cup. During that contest, however, he was on the wrong end of a tackle and was forced out of the game. The post-game evaluation revealed terrible news: he had tears in both his anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments.After surgery, Gatt spent the rest of 2013 rehabilitating his knee. The following March he was back on the field training with Molde but disaster struck again when Gatt reinjured his ACL again and was forced into surgery in May. The injury meant another grueling rehab as well as another lost season. In fact, when Gatt learned of the diagnosis, Molde’s trainer said that he would understand if Gatt decided to quit soccer. That conversation triggered an intense reaction from Gatt.
