It’s a new year with a new coach for the Lopez Lobos soccer team, and they’re ready for whatever the season throws at them.
“We have a dynamic and passionate line up of amazing athletes,” said Coach Justin Honeywell. “Many of these students played through middle school and have come into this year full of vigor and skill.”
Honeywell says he has dynamic forwards, skillful midfielders and a powerful defence that just may take this team to state.
“My main philosophy is to ensure the kids are growing in their skills and having fun doing it,” said Honeywell. “In addition to that, I demand respect from the kids for their parents, teachers and fellow teammates on and off the field.”
New to coaching Lobo soccer this season, Honeywell is no stranger to the field himself.
“I played youth soccer up until 9th-grade and picked up the sport again in college with an after school soccer team. This went on for 2 ½ years. Here I am now proudly coaching this amazing group of young adults.”
Development in fitness, skill and teamwork are Honeywell’s three goals for this season’s team. He said the players are showing “amazing progress and skill” and that he is excited to see how they perform this year.
“They are all amazing young adults and if they keep working together like they have been,” said Honeywell. “We should be a force not to be reckoned with!”
