CHICAGO -  A new era is set to begin for Chicago's MLS team, and a local product is excited to lead them back to the top of the league.

Defender Eric Gehrig was born in Harvey and played his college career at Loyola and now plays for the Fire who open the 2016 season in a little over a month.

As the team began training this week, Eric took some time to stop by Sports Feed on Thursday to discuss what's ahead for the squad. They'll have a new look with first year head coach Veljko Paunovic as they try to improve after a last place finish in 2015.
