Ben had this to say about this new opportunity:
“I am grateful to be joining this new school and excited to be working with this staff that is in full support of education & athletics. My main focus is making sure students keep grades as a priority, so that come soccer season we are fully focused on soccer and work hard to get the results that will put us in a position for top region placement. As we begin open plays it will require potential teammates to develop a team bond that will unify us as a program. We will learn new systems of play and tactics leading up to season kick off including speed of play and physical intensity during games which are elements that will help us get positive results.”
As we begin preparations for the 20-21 Boys soccer season in spring, we will begin to schedule open plays to allow myself and the new coaching staff to get to know upcoming potential players for the season. This will include all eligible freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors at Cedar Valley High School
