West Coast is very happy to add Atlanta Silverbacks GK Eric Ati to our Pro-Team! Eric was 4 a year starter at Southern Poly University and NAIA 2nd team All-American and NSCAA 1st Team All-American.
Name: Eric Ati
Twitter: Don't have a twitter account, never really got into the whole Twitter scene.
Pre-match rituals: I'm not too superstitious but I've worn the same boxers for match day, ever since my professional debut.
Fav Food: Anything my mom cooks! But I'm very partial to smoothies.
Fav Movie: I'm a pretty decent movie goer so I don't have one favorite movie, but I'd have to say The Gladiator and Castaway are among my 2 favorites.
Fav player: Iker Casillas, Nick Rimando and Jeremie Janot... all goalkeepers
Advice to Young Players: I consider myself a young goalkeeper still so the best advice I was ever given was to work hard especially when know one is looking, because at the end of the day you only have to answer to the person looking back at the mirror.
Best Save you ever made: In college my freshman year, it was our first region game and that away from home. I made a quick reaction save low to my left on a deflection off my defender from a corner. Came out with a big draw for our team.
What features do you like in a glove? I like a snug fitting glove that's light weight with soft durable latex.
