Andrew Lantz, senior soccer player, offered advice to younger players at the closing celebration for the soccer team’s 2022-23 season.
I was really not sure if I was going to play soccer this year or not. That decision to play has probably been one of the single best decisions of my life. I want to thank my coaches and my teammates for making this season so special for me. Working hard and putting in the time and effort is 100% worth it and it will pay off.
My other word of advice is to enjoy being a part of a team. The brotherhood that you form with each other is special and not something you’ll find anywhere else. Now that my high school career is over I can already tell you it’s the thing I’m going to miss the most.
As someone who only experienced this brotherhood for a few short months I want to emphasize just how precious it is. Enjoy and cherish these relationships because they’re unique, one-of-a-kind types of relationships that could be impactful in your life for years to come.
