The Field

Four years ago, the School across the street revamped a cow pasture into a soccer field. It is used for school games, Adult League, and at times it becomes an informal neighborhood park. What has interested me about these activities is the informal soccer practices that happen nearly everyday. When the weather is nice, these sessions include some of my former students. These kids hang out, flirt with girls, and play soccer. Something for the the love of sport. No one requires these kids to show up, they show up because they love the game. It is not organized or publicized but it is a positive in these kids lives. Most come from various apartment complexes near the school. Not the greatest places in town. I hope these kids turn out to be great people, they are off to a great start.
