Soccer Showcase

We just got home from the PDA Boys Invitational Showcase. It's a soccer showcase where college scouts/coaches can take a look at prospective players. This showcase took place in Zarephath, New Jersey. We did very well. We won two games and lost one. The wins and losses aren't the…

World Cup 2022

The World Cup is happening right now. It started last Sunday (Nov, 20th). It runs through December 18th. Qatar is the host country this year. There's been plenty of controversy around their handling of the games. If you can try to block all of that out, it's an exciting time.…
