Trinidad and Tobago Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) ambassador Shaka Hislop has encouraged athletes to first and foremost enjoy the sport of football.

The 50-year-old former national player turned television pundit, is himself a former alumnus of the SSFL where he competed for St Mary’s College.  The former Newcastle goalkeeper has been brought on board this year to serve as an inspirational source and lodestar for players taking part in this year’s competition.

“That’s what I would continue to encourage everybody who plays, play because you enjoy it and you’ll see where your talent takes you. Don’t focus on what one person is doing because that’s an entirely different story, they have their own unique path,” Hislop told the T&T Newsday.

With several young players focused on Europe, Hislop also advised youngsters to look further home where the North American league could be a viable option.

“It continues to be a viable alternative.  You can also come through the secondary school level (in TT) to get into college football. I played because I enjoyed the game. I didn’t think I would have ever played professional, that came as I grew and developed.”
