Jordan Morris did not only learn how to manage his diabetes, he also made it to the MLS and became one of the top players in the league. Morris overcame his struggles and managed his condition on the field, to become the "Great Homegrown Hope" in the Seattle Sounders.

Every Sounders' game, you can find Morris doing his last-minute blood sugar check before running onto the field to join his other teammates. Checking his blood sugar levels isn’t a drawback, says the coach and team doctors. Morris is aware of his limitations, who he is, and he has the mindset to be constantly aware, be safe, and to feel his best so he can play his best.
