Sean Franklin: Wow!! How can I sum up my weekend? Honestly, words can't explain what I am feeling. Being able to meet with Jordan and his family was truly a blessing. I had such a great time meeting and hanging out with Jordan. What an amazing, great and strong kid. I know Jordan and I will keep in touch, as we have exchanged phone numbers, email and XBOXLive gamertags. This will definitely be a weekend I will remember forever.

D.C. United Head Coach Ben Olsen
On the general perspective of tonight’s game…
I thought the early goal was big. Their shape was pretty good in the early part of the game. It was tough to break down and once we got the PK, they had to open up. I thought we exploited them in a lot of different areas, wide, especially. I thought Eddie was fantastic today. I thought Silva was good, Rolfe really was trouble for them inside and then our outside backs really gave them a host of trouble.
