Clint Dempsey shares his STICK WITH IT™ story and how he overcame setbacks to return to the field

"I could have given up when my health sidelined me, but I dug deep to show the world just how strong my heart is."

Clint Dempsey is known for his goal scoring and finishing skills. Dempsey is also known for his resiliency and leadership qualities on and off the field. In 2016, he was diagnosed with a heart irregularity which sidelined him for nearly 6 months. He was not sure if he would ever be able to lace up his cleats and take the field for his club or country.

After digging deep to show the world how strong his heart is, he triumphantly made his return to the field in March, 2017, scoring three goals in his first match back with the U.S. Men's National Team. He was determined to STICK WITH IT™.
