This is going to be Mr. Christian’s sixth year coaching boys’ soccer at Pattonville High School, and he says he sticks with this sport because he grew up playing. Mr. Christian believes that succeeding in soccer “requires years of refinement” and encourages people to start playing soccer when they are young.

The team sets goals to reach districts each year, and the coaching staff works towards getting them ready for the big moment at the end of the season. To practice for season games, they contact other coaches to see what they know about the other team, and during districts they watch the opposing teams in person and then come up with a plan. 

The season is underway, and while the team has lost to Mehlville, they have defeated Timberland, so they are right at .500 so far.
