Life is all about soccer for Cedarcrest junior and soccer team co-captain Chris Cole. Sure, he's played basketball, too, but that phase is over for him.

"I'm done with basketball, so I can focus on soccer," says the mid-fielder and forward, who's played soccer since he was 4 years old, and hopes to play in college.

"It was just one of those things. I started playing with the ball and never stopped."

Cole is looking forward to a non-stop season, too, with such goals as staying undefeated at home, and winning first place in the conference, plus, of course, going to the state championship. They're not really his goals, though.

"It's really more of a team thing with me. I'd like my team to go as far as we can," he says.

With a roster of not quite 20 experienced upperclassmen, they all stand a pretty good chance.
