Fontainebleau High alum Andrew Tarbell will make his pro soccer debut this Sunday. Tarbell's San Jose Earthquakes kick of their Major League Soccer season against Colorado. 

Tarbell was the Earthquakes' first-round draft pick this year as a goal-keeper, and he's feeling a bit of the pressure that comes with being a top pick.

"It's a little stressful. You want to make sure you're doing everything right. Everyone has been so receptive and so helpful so it's been a good experience," Tarbell said.
