Whitecaps FC defender Jay DeMerit, now a cover boy!

Jan 22, 2014, 7:04 PM EDT

Vancouver Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit has covered a lot of ground during his soccer journeys. He’s been so very many things.

He was a longshot dreamer coming out of the United States – but one who climbed and climbed and made it to the England’s upper tiers.

Then he was a World Cup starter. And somewhere along the way, DeMerit became a bit of a movie star, the central character in his own fascinating story.

Later, he was a returning MLS hero, making his way back into the top league of the United States and Canada and establishing himself as a Vancouver Whitecaps’ building block.

Now, the man has added something else to his personal CV: Magazine cover boy! Eat your heart out David Beckham.

DeMerit, by the way, recently re-signed with the Whitecaps. We talked just a few weeks ago about why that’s such a good thing for the club, now entering a new day under new manager Carl Robinson.

    DeMerit’s wife is beautiful. Who is she?

      Of course she is…all soccer players have beautiful wives and girlfriends. That’s part of the reason they play soccer and work hard to be so good at it!
