By JAKE FENLASON and AUSTIN MARTZ, Saint Louis FC, 06/30/18, 3:30AM EDT


Energy FC keeper steps Outside the Box to talk footy, coffee, beards, Ballers and more

So is this thing on?

It's a double keeper edition of Outside the Box as Energy FC's Cody Laurendi joins the Saint Louis FC duo and fellow From the Pitch contributors Jake Fenlason and Austin Martz.

A noted leader and now an entrenched member of the OKC community, Laurendi details a soccer journey that included stints in Belgium and Puerto Rico, as well as several spots stateside, before he found a home with the Energy.

Both currently on the shelf due to injury, Cody and Austin describe the path to recovery while the lads connect over their shared love of coffee shops. 

Laurendi also shares the origins of his trademark beard, explains how Shazam and social media has helped him connect with the creative team behind a notable HBO series and provides unique insight behind his approach to leadership and life after soccer.
