    I am Callie Marie Schalk from Bryant United U-14 Boys team. I would say our team is like one big family and we all know that sometimes we have to play where we don’t want to but it is best for the team. The only way we won this tournament was because we all filled in to where we were needed especially during the final game. During the final game, we ended up with 4 injuries by the end of the match, and we all just knew that we had to fill in where we were needed. The other reason we won this tournament was because of our Coaches Eric Myers, Randy Whittaker, and Kevin Johnson. There is one other person that needs to be recognized for giving it his all at this tournament and that person is [b]Slade Lewis[/b]. He only let 3 goals by during this tournament and that is amazing since we were playing Premier teams. So I would like to Thank all of the Parents and Coaches and other supporters for supporting and pushing us to go to practices even if we didn’t want to and getting us to games and tournaments.
