There's no real set pattern toward becoming a pro or a star in a sport. Some try special coaches, recruiting specialists and sports psychologists.
The McBeans went with faith, Christian values and a love for the game of soccer when raising their rising star, Jack. He's now 16 and on the path toward stardom.
It all happened so quickly, yet Scotty and Lisa found a way to make it methodical, and still there's a measured pace going as Jack continues to elevate his game.
In January, Jack signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy. He's trained with the big names, David Beckham and Landon Donovan, yet he's found a way to stay level-headed, grounded. That could be seen Saturday when he was back at Mariners Christian School, where he attended. This time he was teaching and showing kids with rough backgrounds how to have fun with the game.
Jack was a featured guest during a soccer clinic for about 65 children from KidWorks, the Santa Ana-based program for kids from at-risk neighborhoods.
