The Houston Chronicle announced their list of the most interesting people in the Houston area, and Brian Ching was named as one of the 43 individuals in the lineup.
Here's what the Chronicle had to say about Ching:
Ching will soon retire from the Houston Dynamo. He is the first Hawaiian US men’s national team soccer player. Although he is a Houston import, Ching has become the face of the franchise, and indeed soccer in Houston, and has completely adopted his new hometown.
