The latest in The Detroit News' series of “15 Things You Don’t Know About Me” -- Sebastian Harris, a defender for Detroit City FC.
1. I married my high-school sweetheart and had two girls; one is almost 2 and the other is 3 months old.
2. My favorite food is spaghetti.
3. My favorite holiday is Halloween. I actually take the whole day off so i can decorate (if it falls on a workday).
4. My family is actually from England.
5. I played professional soccer in England in League 2 for Northampton Town FC. This city is where my family is from and who they supported as kids.
6. My favorite movie is "Dumb and Dumber." Growing up, I almost watched it everyday going to bed. I can basically say the whole movie :)
7. I have two dogs, one boy and one girl. Both pitbull mixes. Jake and Lily are their names.
8. My freshmen year of high school, I was 5-foot-2. By my junior year, I shot up to 6-2.
9. Every time I poke the ball away from strikers and they say, 'Man you have long legs, I didn’t think you could get that,' I always say back, 'Go Go Gadget Leg!'
10. I am in the "2010 FIFA World Cup" soccer game on all major gaming devices!
11. I secretly like to watch the Hallmark movies my wife puts on all the time.
12. I love starfruit. When I was in Hawaii for my honeymoon, I got to eat one fresh off the tree!
13. I’ve had 10 cars to date: Pontiac Grand Am, Ford Escort Sport, Chevy S-10, Chevy Renault C10, MG ZR Rover, BMW 317 Ti, Dodge Neon SRT-4, Volkswagen GTI, Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Audi A6.
14. I own my own business (Midwest Forklift Parts).
14A. I wear my heart on my sleeve. My favorite quote: “People don’t burn out because what they do, people burn out because life makes them forget why they do it.” (Inky Johnson)
15. Before I was born, a drunken driver hit us and I was born 2 months premature. I was in NICU for nearly two months, fighting for my life. Doctors told my parents I would never be able to walk, that I would be in a wheelchair all my life, and that I would have to have thick glasses to see. Well look at me now!
