It?s funny because we were practicing and Eric was flying around the goal and diving for everything. I told him, ?Hey dude, relax, the game?s tomorrow (so take it easy).? But that?s the type of attitude he plays with. I don?t care what anyone else says ? to me, he?s the best goalkeeper in South Texas.

This is unbelievable. As I've said before, it's a story about kids who never gave up.

It?s still the first round of district, so there is still a lot of soccer to be played. Teams are trying to position themselves for the second round, and the result of our game Friday will put someone in the driver?s seat.

Could you show these kids your (state championship) ring, because that's what they're playing for today?

It should be another dandy.
