My grandson, Cole is a senior this year. Soccer is his main sport and he will be playing soccer in college. He had his very last game on Thursday. They lost in the District Finals in 2 overtimes on an offsides goal. It was a hard way to lose, but it was to the returning PIAA AA State Champions. We played them tough.
Cole has Lymes Disease and suffered all season with fatigue, aches and pain. It was hard watching him struggle at times, but he never gave up, always worked through the pain.
He was the teams co-caption 2 years in a row.
I always love watching him play so hard and scoring goals.
Since he was always a goal threat, he was always marked.
AND - usually taken down hard.
He was on the Prom Court at half time.
A team leader.
A favorite to many of the town's youth players.
He always led his team in prayer before the games.
He is a wonderful grandson and we will miss him next year in this uniform, BUT we are willing to drive 5 hours to Geneva College and watch him in his college career!
