They’ll Do Anything To Play Soccer

The other day, 4 Westport teenagers wanted to play soccer. But snow covered every field.

No problem. The quartet — Staples varsity sophomore Michael Reid, JV sophomore Gabe Pensak, freshman Kenji Goto and honorary Wrecker/current Red Bull player Kyle Zajec — took shovels to Wakeman, and spent a couple of hours shoveling.

Then they played.

With that kind of attitude, the future of American soccer is very, very strong.

Before...

Before…

...and after.

…and after.

  1. Gotta love it. I would love it even more if the system could be changed so that a player such as Kyle could play for his high school team and the Red Bulls academy squad. I think it would be a more enriching experience for him.

  2. Fred – agree with you 100%

  3. If kids and teens would make that kind of effort just for them to train and play their favorite sport, it might create a ripple effect which in turn would have other kids and teens join in their fun and enthusiasm in the sport. I just hope that the fire in their spirit won’t die out.
