Loyalty Leads To Victory: U.S. Goalkeeper Sean Johnson Represents Core Of Sports

At this point in his young career, Sean Johnson is probably best known for a bad bounce -- he was in goal for the U.S.'s Under-23 squad against El Salvador when a long shot skipped past him in extra time, eliminating the team from Olympic qualification.

His loyalty to his team and his profession are apparent: "When you put on your jersey," he says, "you're representing something bigger than yourself." Watch the video below:
