After months of preparation and training, a growing, local soccer team claims their first victory with the help of their coach, Lalo Ramirez. This Sunday tournament was filled with strategizing, encouraging words, and lots of team effort. The Good Shepherd Catholic Church soccer team dedicated their entire afternoon to the tournament.
To Ramirez, it isn’t about winning. Their love for soccer is more than staying fit. It’s freedom. It’s a whole new world that serves as an outlet for the boys. The team provides community, goals to strive for and a way for self-improvement.
“Seeing my boys trying their best and improving is what makes it worth it,” said Ramirez.
Each boy played their hearts out with not just a love for the sport but for community, for each other, for brotherhood and for becoming closer as a team.
