“Just Kick It”
As of late 2019, we have had to shut down all of our sports programs because of Covid-19. Our soccer players have still been on it, although Lanham Christian School’s soccer team has not been winning their latest games. Our most recent game was against Chesterton, and sadly we did not win. To say the least, we’ll be coming back with something big this year.
Olukayode, one of our 7th graders has a very inspirational story about how he started playing soccer.
“I like playing soccer because I played FIFA with my brother, and that inspired me to start playing. I have been playing for a month. I watch youtube to learn some skills and I practice with my brother.”
How inspirational is that? And that’s why we have a very supportive, helpful, and kind team! That’s the type of community that we have at Lanham Christian school but we aren’t on that subject yet.
From one of our 2nd interviews with Daniel Musa.
This interview holds a lot of potential or some value, I say that because Daniel stated:
“I have been playing soccer for nine years starting in his hometown of Sierra Leone, Africa.”
Daniel also stated:
“I will continue to play soccer for fun outside of school. However, this year, I will strive to win games and score as many points as possible. “
Many other players like Daniel are fired up for this soccer season, putting their all into the team and the LCS pride. At the beginning of this article I stated:
“To say the least we’ll be coming back big this year.”
Well, that adds to Daniels’s inspirational and encouraging story, In order to have a winning team spiritually you have to put your all into the team, encourage others, and still cheer even when they don’t win, so the next time they will try harder. We have to make sure we lift each other up even when you and that person are not getting along that day. And now we have Comfort, another one of our soccer players.
Comfort has been playing soccer for four years and plays right wing on the LCS soccer team. She says her coach, coach Boyce, is very supportive of everyone on the team. The team is each other’s family on and off the field.
They always lift up each other’s spirits during games and practices. The advice she gives out to future LCS soccer players is to have good time management with your assignments and to be willing to learn. And even as an eyewitness, I could really tell that Coach Boyce and assistant coach Mr. Omotosho are very supportive coaches.
Here are some pictures from Senior Night. The team had one senior on the team, Brandon Mobley.
Thanks for a great season and hopefully everyone will come out next year!
