Tragic news in the soccer world Monday has a Sounders FC connection.

Akeem Adams, who tried out with the Sounders in 2010, died Monday over suffering a brain hemorrhage over the weekend. He was 22. The Trinidadian defender had been dealing with major health concerns the past few months, including a massive heart-attack in September that eventually led to a leg amputation to help with circulation problems.

Adams, as you can see in the picture, played for Seattle in a friendly against Chivas de Guadalajara, coming on at halftime in the 3-1 win. He most recently played for Ferencvaros in Hungary and was a part of Trinidad and Tobago’s national team at various levels.

Here is a brief Q&A we had with Adams back in 2010.
