I still use this song when I work out, or right before I get out the car at the gym. A classic banger that will never fail to get people pumped, myself included. RIP Archie Eversole.”

“What happened to Archie Eversole is an incredible tragedy. It’s a huge loss for the city and for its soccer culture,” one added.

So sad. “We Ready” truly is a gameday anthem.
