In a game they trailed at halftime, the Woodburn Bulldogs came back to defeat the Wilson Trojans 2-1 to secure their second state championship. Congrats Bulldogs!
Jared Montz, ex professional soccer player and the owner of America’s First Online Soccer Academy, will release a review of Boys this week. He’s also holding a contest for his readers–winner gets a free signed copy of the book!
Jared has got an interesting website worth a visit. The timeline showing his rise from youth soccer player to professional, and his subsequent decline due to multiple injuries, surgeries, and ongoing physical therapy is worth the visit alone, showing how talent and hard work are often not enough to keep professional athletes on the field. You also need luck.
After his professional career ended, Jared reinvented himself as a coach and businessman. He runs soccer camps, his online academy, blogs and writes about soccer. A busy guy. Check out his site here:
