I have to keep pushing, keep striving, and also keep being me on the field. Ever since I joined the 'Caps when I was 14, they molded me throughout the years into the pro that I've become. Thanks to the fans for supporting me, I really enjoy playing in front of them in Vancouver"... said John Herdman in 2018, “Alphonso Davies is someone to whom all our young players can aspire, not only the way he holds himself in the community off the field, but also how he lights up and brings that personality on the pitch.

It resonates with people in Canada because they see a kid that they helped on a journey and they can be part of that journey now”... wrote MLS in 2018, Davies has “soft, quick feet, head on a pivot, technique that’s built for go not show, the first touch of a pillow and courage to make a game-changing play”... said Gene Vazzoler in 2018, “I dreamed of having his speed.
