Final Home Game of 2011

Posted: November 5, 2011 in Psychology

Today is our final home game for 2011.  We are hosting the conference tournament semifinal.  If we win we will advance to the #1 seed’s place for the conference final.

You have to love coaching in a sport like soccer.  This morning I woke up and found the newspaper had a blast of information about the last home football game, and the last home volleyball game was listed as an “area event,” high school playoff game previews were all over the front page of the sports section, and nothing about soccer.  Our campus administration will be at the two other sporting events, and one of our assistant coaches will have to keep stats because the SID will be at Parent’s Day for the other two sports.

I’m reminded how easily soccer is forgotten in the mill of everything else going on in this country.  But I chose this sport, it is my passion and our fans are second to none because they support us no matter what.

It’s going to be a great day today, doesn’t matter if anyone else in town is there.  We have three seniors who have meant the world to me playing their final home game, and a group of guys who have faught hard this season to get to where they are.  Very proud of this team and what they’ve accomplished, and I know it’s going to be a great day today.
