The heart of a soccer player
Wow! What a hard game Caleb and his team just got done playing. It was a constant attack at Caleb and his defense for an hour. We barely even had a chance to take a shot at goal, the other team was so tough. By the end of the game at least 6 of our players were playing hurt and it was all they could do to finish, but they did. This team does not quit. I watched as Caleb went from an extremely difficult and deflating first half, to keeping the second half clean for 25 straight minutes. I watched as the captain of his team was in tears on the field because his ankle hurt so bad, but he was not giving up; a heart of gold. These kids are amazing at their ability to give it their all and not back down. They are awesome! Even though the loss was hard to take, I consider them winners, they gave it their all.
