Rise & Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story is a documentary film that looks at how the present Vancouver Whitecaps captain, Jay DeMerit, found his place in soccer.

 Jay took time out from his busy schedule to talk about the film with the Vancouver Observer in a relaxed and engaging interview.

 For starters, I asked him about some of the adventures and experiences he had while searching for a European soccer team to play for.

Rise & Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story is available through Truth 2 Life Productions.
