#TBT: 17-year-old John Thorrington signs with Man U

By Molly Bruh

John Thorrington, a natural leader here at D.C. United, got his professional start at just 17-year-old at Manchester United. The talented midfielder left California to chase his dreams and is now one of the most respected veterans in MLS. But Thorrington is more than the hardworking player we see on the pitch for the Black-and-Red-- he is a family man, as well.
