Kyle Rote, Jr.
Kyle Rote Jr. was a North America Soccer League scoring champion, the league’s Rookie of the Year in 1973, and a three-time “Superstars” champion against the likes of Pete Rose, John Havlicek and numerous Gold-medal winning Decathletes; but the greatest thrill of his life came prior to his professional career when he committed his life to Christ at an FCA Camp in Colorado.
The three-year U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team member and 2010 U.S. National Soccer Hall of Fame inductee, was a member of FCA’s National Board of Directors and a frequent speaker at FCA events across the country. Rote Jr. also served as the longstanding emcee at the FCA/AutoZone Liberty Bowl Prayer Breakfast and was a leader on FCA Soccer’s Ministry Board. After retiring from the sport, Rote Jr. co-founded Athletic Resource Management, Inc., a Memphis-based sports agency where he worked as the Chief Executive Officer.
