The Will to Win

This year Justin started school at a newly built high school. The decision was made that Seniors wouldn't transfer over, allowing them to graduate from the school that they felt loyal to. So Justin, as a Junior, is the oldest at the school and will also be in the first graduating class next year.
Fun for Justin. Not so great for the athletic dept.

A few weeks ago the school held their soccer tryouts. Congratulations to Justin for not only making the team, but for also being voted the captain. At the parents meeting we were informed that besides obviously not having any Seniors, there are only 5 Juniors on the team. "Oh my gosh" I thought "We are going to be slaughtered"

Friday was the first game and I am happy to announce that our team came out and played like champions. The game ended with a score of 4-0. Justin played the whole game and actually scored the 4th goal. He gave it his all and it was so exciting! No one expected this win (especially not the other team). It seemed impossible. But luckily these boys believed they could do it, and they did. Way to go guys.
