Lousaka and some of his teammates joined former President Bill Clinton on April 18, 2010, at the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust’s Homestead complex on the final day of the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative University meeting. They were there as part of the rehabilitation and expansion of the existing facilities on the site. “It was an honor and it was encouraging to get that close to somebody who’s such a large figure and see that he’s a true American and a regular guy,” said Lousaka. “He shows that he’s around and involved and it was definitely a positive thing. It’s always cool to know that a guy like him is a football fan with as busy as his schedule is.”
