We are blessed to have the same great (and really handsome) coach we have had for the last six season. It is an honor for Marcus to be able to work with these boys, teaching them the skills of soccer, along with camaraderie and team work. He can give a very powerful half-time speech, motivating a monumental comeback where the team started off a game being down 3 goals. By half time they had moved the score to 2-3, still not in our favor. Coach was able to boost morale and get the boys focused on team work and hustling. They were able to win the game, 7-6 in the end! In sacrificing his personal time to mold these young men, he was blessed by seeing their growth on the field and in their maturity levels. This season he implemented a new, team tradition...prayer. He understands his responsibility to be a godly role model, not only to our children, but to the team's children and even their parents. We are very thankful to the parents for entrusting their sons to his team.
We even had some great cheerleaders on the sidelines. Some cheered less and explored more.
And, there was no season complete with out a little unruliness!
One of the greatest highlights of our season was that Eli was able to play with his best friends. There is nothing like experiencing the challenges of competition and celebrations of success with your friends. We are so blessed by them.
