2019 Fall Season

Recommended Posts

What a great year by our team!  In my mind nothing better to get me cheered up again than talking about next year.  Thanks Ben, Morgan, Ezana and all of the other seniors. Does anyone know the status of our inderclassmen, specifically Egbo and Carlo?   Will everyone be back besides our seniors?

I expect as usual we will have some reserves transfer out to get some playing time with other programs.  I think the GA official announcement came out January 5th this year so I expect we should hear rumors soon if Egbo or Carlo are targeted for that.

I hope that the zips will play some important soccer before the fall.

Teams are allowed to take an international trip once every 4 years.

Caleb took a team to Spain.

Jared took a team to Brazil in summer 2015.

   if you remember, the zips in 2014...lost in the round of 64 in a PK Shootout...

The 2015 team made it all the way to the college cup.

    The players on that team credit that trip for great improvement and that they really grew to believe in each other.

I hope that there is a 2019 international trip.   It is expensive.....but I am confident that the zips alumni and family...will want to help these young men get better.

Personally, I am hoping that they go to Portugal......so that Diogo Pacheco and his teammates will get to play in front of his family

Egbo was asked tonight by a fan at the soccer celebration if he would be back next year and with a big smile on his face he said yes.

Am I correct that this is the first year since at least the Lolla era that the team does not play at least one game in the West?  Rhetorical question. :D
