THE STORY OF A TRUE WARRIOR: ADISAK KRAISORN
In 2018, Adisak tore his ACL and had to work hard to restore his fitness and return to the pitch, which he did in a record 6 months time.
This fight-back spirit was evident in early struggles in Adisak's life. When he was young, the family business went under after a financial trust was broken. At one point, the family had barely enough money to buy food and struggled day-to-day for income.
Golf sought ways to earn for his parents, and his skill at football helped out. On weekends, when not at school, he would play for whatever teams could pay him, bringing in maybe 500 baht at a time to help pay for family expenses.
It was a challenging time for Golf, and even his football boots were falling apart, with no money to buy something better. "At the time, I was just focused on doing what I needed to help the family," says Golf.
His skills became important to him, and eventually led to the realization that he might pursue the path of a professional footballer. Golf dreamed of being able to restore his family's prosperity and of becoming one of Thailand's best players.
In football, as in life, one can be hurt by inadvertent tackles and play that is not fair. Adisak has learned to accept this and rise above it.
In this way, Adisak Kraisorn "AK9" embodies the true spirit of a warrior and champion.
