Varsity Out to Prove Its Skill

The boy’s varsity soccer started off their season with a record of 5 wins,one loss, and one tie as of January 27 2011. In the preseason, they were very dominant, beating many teams and they look to do so during the season. They look to improve and will try not to lose games by working harder during practice to improve the team’s flaws.

The varsity team has also added many more great players. Freshman Ramiro Molina, who moved up to varsity has already scored three goals in only two games. He is a great new scorer for the team, and adds more speed and a better controlled offense. The team also got new sophomore players Ryan Onizuka and Kent Turtletaub to fill in as midfielders during the game.

“It feels really good to be on varsity as a freshman because I get to play with older people and bigger people as well, and it makes me better,” said freshman Ramiro Molina.

“It feels good to be on varsity as a sophomore because I get an edge on the rest of the sophomores. By the time I become a junior or senior and we all are on varsity, I will most likely be used to the higher intensity play. And that will make me get an edge on the new people who move up to varsity that we play against,” said sophomore Ryan Onizuka.

“It feels great to be on varsity as a sophomore because I get to practice with the team, and playing with better people gets me better. As a mid-fielder I need to be able to run the team, and what I am learning from playing with varsity will help me get in shape and be able to handle the ball better by the time I am a junior or senior,” said sophomore Kent Turtletaub.

During the preseason, the team beat many good teams with reputations of being top-notch schools including Serra. Beating them in the preseason was a great boost for the team because it helped the players be more confident, and it got the team’s reputation up. “It felt good beating Serra because they have a really good reputation, being a private school, and if you asked anybody, they would have thought that Serra would kill us just because they have that reputation of being a private school that has a great sports program,” said sophomore Ryan Onizuka.

The players all have different positions and different roles on the team. Nobody really plays multiple positions, and everybody has a specific job, like an assembly line in a factory.

“I think my role on the team is to score since I am a forward, and that’s what forwards do,” said Ramiro Molina.

“My role on the team during game is to run the whole field and get the ball from the defenders. I also have to play defense and,” said sophomores Ryan Onizuka and Kent Turtletaub.

There are many captains that lead this team. One of them is Angel Mejia, who has a big role as a captain on and off of the field. “My role as a captain is to give all the players motivation when they are not feeling that good. And on the field during games, my role is to make my teammates better at what their positions are,” said Mejia, a junior.

We wish the varsity boys soccer team the best of luck throughout the rest of the season.
