Starting the season in the summer, the boys’ varsity soccer team began August 19, in Kalamazoo at the Hackett Prep Westside Shoot out.  The team consists of seniors Brandon Grafe, Nick Katsaros, Jared Leach and Lars Lund, juniors Jayson Bonnema, Dan Foura, Matthew Lough and Derek Veenstra; sophomores Nathan Ritchie, Brady Schnetzler and Anthony Salinas, freshmen Scot Crippin, Justin Garza, Gabe Humbert, Lucas Jenkins, Cayden Kromer, Jared Lubieniecki, Nick Minnard, Braeden Rohm and Braeden Selent. The team is coached by Ali Jacobs.

The ultimate goal for the team is to have a winning record this year.  “We are doing well; [we’re] able to capitalize a lot better than last year,” said Jacobs.  To improve from last year, the boys have done conditioning, have done crossfit over the summer and have done better at connecting passes.

In order to help the team win, Jacobs says the team needs to continue playing together, learning to work with each other, connecting with each other and getting along.  The team already has a better record than they did last year.

“We have a fun group of guys,” said Jacobs.
