12 Dec iThinkBigger – KC Crew: Teeming with teams
Wade was living downtown and working as a web developer and graphic designer when the former college football player grew frustrated with the lack of options for adult sports in the city.
Wade, a self-described “tech nerd,” rented a field and put his skills to use by building a website for players to join teams and teams to join leagues.
“It was for me and my friends to play softball and sand volleyball,” said Wade, the founder and owner of KC Crew. “Three years later, we had 3,000 people playing.”
