Fútbol is the world’s most popular sport.
Soccer, is what we call it in the United States, but foreigners seem special to us in the soccer world. That is how some of the students feel at Penn Manor High School about the new soccer coach.
“Coach McCabe likes winning so I think he will do all he can to make us into a winning program,” soccer player Bobby Goss said.
Coach McCabe was a coach at Eastern University and he is from Scotland. Some soccer players think the athletic director made the right decision but they will always miss their old coach Jack Kremer.
“Coach McCabe seems good but no one will ever be as good as Coach Kremer,” said sophomore Juan Cubano.”We still have a lot of work to do, we lost eight seniors, but hopefully we will be successful in the future.”
Even the graduating soccer players think it is a good change from the old style of play. The game of soccer is changing. It is becoming faster and you have to do things twice as fast.
Senior Willie Chalfant believes the new coach is Penn Manor’s answer.
“Yes I like the coach a lot, he has a wealth of knowledge on the game and seems very excited to be here,” Chalfant said about the new coach.”The only way they will have a successful year is if some young players step up and be leaders.”
Coach McCabe stands on P.U.S.H which is Passion; Unity; Selflessness; Humility. He has been on very successful clubs in Scotland. As a five-time national champion he hopes to improve the lives of Penn Manor’s soccer players both on and off the field.
