Former FC Buffalo striker Kendell McFayden made waves with the Rochester Rhinos after departing the Blitzers to play for the USL side in 2012. On Wednesday morning, the Rhinos invited the Twittersphere to talk to Kendell during one of their “Ask A Rhino” sessions. Here’s what Kendell had to say about his career, FC Buffalo and the Rhinos.

On how many goals he’s shooting for in his first full Rhinos season:

“I’m looking to have at least 10 goals this season!”

On FCB’s supporters group, The Situation Room

“You guys were the best! So much enthusiasm.#ForOurCity

On which teammates he think would fare well in the pros:

“I have been on a lot of teams but Mike Reidy, Josh Faga, and Gary Boughton were quality playing for FC Buffalo.”

On if he’d rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees:

“A big bear! Quick and easy…..Hopefully!”

On what his job would be if he weren’t playing soccer:

“I would be looking for a job in the Criminal Justice field!”
