Donovan speaks to seminar at USC on USMNT and his frame of mind

By Adam Serrano

Landon Donovan's status for 2013 has been the biggest story in American soccer this year and on Wednesday, thanks to a young reporter, we got a little bit of insight on the Galaxy star's frame of mind.

Donovan spoke to a seminar at USC on Wednesday called "The Competitive Edge" and aspiring journalist identified as Jesse Xiao or @Xman818 on Twitter provided a constant update of the hour-long session. For the complete transcript of Donovan's quotes, see the student's Twitter feed here

Remember, the quotes are being tweeted so take them with a grain of salt, but full credit to the young journalist for informing the world on Donovan's thoughts. Should be noted, however, that Xiao claimed this class was being taped, meaning that we may have video of Donovan speaking in the coming days. 

Donovan touched on a number of topics including:

His desire to play for the U.S. national team and their mentality...

His frame of mind last season...

His initial relationship with David Beckham...
