ONN – Oakland Roots Sign Los Angeles -Raised Defender Tarek Morad
After winning the 2017 USL Cup in Louisville, I knew it was time to pursue a new challenge. In order for my professional career to flourish, I needed to break out of my comfort zone.
In early 2018, I left Los Angeles on a flight to Cairo; I had neither a contract offer nor a trial in place prior to my departure. In spite of this, my intention upon arrival was to sign with a top club.
However, after months of difficulties and ultimately unsuccessful trials, I left Egypt with something more valuable than a footballing experience. I found something unintentionally when I set foot on my ancestral homeland. I realized my unconscious desire to reconnect with my identity; my ethnicity, my culture, and my heritage. My footballing journey to Cairo culminated with a journey of self-discovery.
Football has given me my first steps as a baby. Football has taken me to see parts of the world that exist in people’s dreams. Football has taught me countless invaluable life lessons and has given me so much… but, it doesn’t define who I am.
Where we come from makes us who we are. Although I was born in Los Angeles, Egyptian blood courses through my veins.
While we may walk different paths, we are all products of our roots.

Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
