Jack McBean passed his driving test last month and his father is happy he did.
Scotty will not have to drive his 16-year-old son to soccer practice with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
McBean might show up to the Home Depot Center in Carson in a nice ride. Probably not as fancy David Beckham's car.
Scotty is a general manager of a car dealership, but McBean might not need his father's help. McBean can probably afford his own car now.
McBean has signed a professional contract with the Galaxy, making the Corona del Mar High sophomore the fourth-youngest player in Major League Soccer history. Scotty did not want to talk about how much money his son signed for, leaving that up to the Galaxy to formally announce the deal later.
Scotty just wanted to talk soccer and how he and his son used to kick the ball around when McBean was 4. Dad is still getting used to the idea of McBean kicking it with the likes of Beckham and Landon Donovan.
