Message from Head Boys Soccer Coach Cristian Mihut

Ancient Rome gave us aqueducts, colosseums, toga parties, and the forum. Modern Italy gave us pasta and Juventus. Lately, Italy gave us Nezar! When he arrived in the U.S. he could barely stitch two English words together. By the end of the season, Nezar became the entertainment czar of the team, providing humours release when needed most. His technical skills helped all of us get better, and his camaraderie helped bring unity to the team. 


Congratulations Nezar and best of luck!
