This is my son about to kick another 70 yard punt or better. He was named the number 2 goalie in the state for High School league over all regions this year. We were an AA school. The football coach pulled him out of class to try to talk him into being their kicker after watching him play numerous games, but my son is all soccer and turned it down. One thing I taught my son about the game was concentration and focus and communication between team mates was key to winning the sport and he has fared well for listening. I also taught him that every player is key to the game and to project ahead. He was always good at math and told him to use those skills to calculate direction just as you would in shooting pool When he first started playing at the age of five, I noticed that all the little kids wanted to be the one to kick it on the net. I pulled him aside and told him that the one who sets up the ball (mid field) will gain more than the one kicking the ball(forward). He has played various positions over the years, but mostly forward and goalie. He has good direction when he kicks. He has done really well and the ESPN photographers and reporters boasted on him at his last State High School play off game and he gave them some beautiful shots. Yes..I am the proud Momma. He is living a dream. I hope he continues to succeed.
