This weekend is going to be the start of State Cup. Being one of the biggest tournaments in the Florida, all the best teams from the state come together and compete. Since the beginning of the season my coach has been telling us that this tournament will be tough and that we need to train hard in order to win. My other team last year got eliminated in the first round, but I believe that this year we can win it. I think winning the trophy would be the highlight of my career.
State cup starts on Saturday and we only have three days left of practice to get ready. Although I believe that my team can win this tournament, there are still some issues facing the team. Some people haven't been showing up to practice, when they really should because we only have a week left and we need all the training we can get. Sometimes our coach wants us to learn new plays but barely anyone shows up, so by game time only a few players know the play.
Regardless of this problem, I still think our team has a good chance of winning. My main worry right now is the burn on my leg. I got it while getting on mark's bike on Tuesday, and it still hasn't healed. Im most likely going to have to play with this burn. I just pray that no one hits me there because I think I may cry. Getting it infected will also suck, but I just can't miss this tournament. This is my last year playing club soccer and I want to end on a good note. Força Cutler Ridge Soccer!
