A Seattle-area man has created a superhero who embodies the best of himself and his father, former NASL Seattle Sounders star David D'Errico, who played for the team in the 1970's. Aaron D’Errico always wanted to play soccer like his dad, who was also Captain of the US Men's National Team and wore the Number 2, like current Sounders FC star Clint Dempsey.
Cerebral Palsy kept Aaron off the pitch, but he found another way to live out his soccer dreams and inspire others at the same time. In 2011, he created a superhero called Ammon, a medical student who cures himself of Cerebral Palsy, acquires super powers and uses soccer to help save humanity. An artist friend helped create Ammon, but Aaron is now searching for an artist who can help bring the entire project to life. Aaron shared his vision with guest host Kim Holcomb, as well as how potential artists can get their artwork to him.

NOTE: Aaron is trying to raise a total $2,000 to pay the winning artist for his/her work. If you'd like to contribute, visit his fundraising page at CrowdTilt.
