As we march to kickoff of the home opener on March 26, we will use 10 Questions to introduce you to the players on the 2022 Men’s team roster. Look for a different player featured each day — plus a couple days where will feature more than one. Our next feature is Luke Ferreira, who comes to us from USL Championship side Colorado Switchbacks.

1: Did you ever have another dream career besides soccer?

A: No, my only dream was to become a professional soccer player.

2: How do you decompress after a long week of training?

A: Speak with my family and just relax at home. Occasionally play some video games.

3. What was the most nervous you’ve ever been?

A: Anything that has to do with public speaking.

4. What are your preferred pre-game, locker room and post-game routines?

A: I like listening to music, joking with my teammates, and just getting mentally and physically ready. I also like to visualize the game I'm getting ready to have.

5: What’s the most memorable sports moment you’ve had as a fan?

A: Watching my favorite club Cruzeiro beat our rivals in the last 50/50 fan capacity game between the two.

6: What sporting event have you always wanted to go to and why?

A: Brazil in the World Cup final. I'm Brazilian so that is a dream.

7: What’s your go-to meal the night before a match?

A:I like pasta the night before a meal.

8: You haven't been in Chattanooga for very long yet... have you found any interesting spots or restaurants you enjoy?

A: I drove up to the top of Signal Mountain and it was very beautiful to see the rest of Chattanooga from there. Truly beautiful.

9: What do you believe is the greatest challenge most athletes are facing today?

A: Consistency is everything and is also one of the most difficult things to maintain as an athlete. Consistently training, performing, mentally.

10. Who inspired you as a young athlete? Why?

A: Cristiano Ronaldo, the greatest soccer player ever. And why, I would say it's because he developed himself into the greatest. Showed me a way to better myself and really work on developing my abilities more than others. His work ethic and mentality pushed me to work harder and longer than everyone else and ultimately lead me into my dream of professional soccer.
