  1. what a run! what a team! what a legacy! ….what a program!

  2. Boys you played wlith a singular goal in mind and Dan, Kurt, and Tom coached you with that same mindset. That was to be the best “TEAM” you could be!. I feel you don’t get respect, you earn it. The respect you have earned is beyond any accolade or trophy or end of year number. They are wonderful and prideful, but the RESPECT that I have for all of you, the coaching staff, your parents is far greater. More importantly the RESPECT you have garnered from a soccer community outside Westport is what makes you the “TEAM” I proudly get to stand behind. Thank you for a wonderful fun filled season with lots of laughs and many goodtimes. Best wishes happy thanksgiving and good fortunes to the seniors in college
