“I am very excited to visit an area I have never been to before nor has most of our team. Trips like this early are great opportunities to bond as a team,” Eastern Florida State College men’s soccer coach Jeff Carr said.
“Both teams are top shelf and of course Salt Lake is the reigning national champion, so we will have our hands full in both games with a lot of talented players, and both teams are coached by tremendous coaches.”
The men’s team has been working their way into shape and has performed well in the preseason scrimmages to prepare for the upcoming season.
“I am really excited about our team so far. It is a very competitive group that is starting to bond like a family,” Carr said. “We have a lot of talented players on this team battling for playing time this year.”
