As Aaron grew older, his passion for playing games dwindled. Similarly, his brother’s aspirations of becoming a soccer player also faded away.

Swanson’s father passed away shortly after his birth. Steve, the eldest of the sibling, took on the role of a father figure for his younger brothers.

The older brother experienced several school expulsions, causing Cub’s soccer dreams to diminish and the streets to become dominated by violence and chaos.

“What we had to do to get where we are at was difficult, but we did it. We’re here, and he would definitely be a proud pop.”
