A career winding down

I am nearly in shock as I recently realized that we only get to watch Hunter in 5 more soccer games in his career. He has already told us he does not want to play in college, so that means a West Region game against Jamestown on Tuesday, the West Region Championship game next weekend, and the three games at the State Tournament in Fargo.





Hunter started playing soccer in kindergarten in the Bismarck Public School league which was parent coached and run. The big step came when Tami sent him to the English Summer soccer camp as part of The Capitol City Soccer Club when he was 10. He was awarded hardest working player trophy for that week and his decision was made - a soccer player he would be. He had some success at basketball (until he stopped growing) and a lot of success at baseball (another season behind the plate next spring for Century), plays golf and tennis but the truest love has been soccer. So many summer travelling championships, 2 or 3 summer state championships, 2 North Dakota High School second place finishes and one State High School Championship and it all comes down to .... 5 more games.
