2019 US Youth Soccer : Lou Fusz 03 vs. PSA National 03 – Thur – 11am – Field 4



part of my memory Ariza's our state Cup was fun my team was very competitive I mean we had a lot of competition as well but I can't remember how many we want maybe nine I think is what we counted with with our team which which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is win state cup go to regionals and go to Nationals we always fell short going to Nationals so it still hurts today to even talk about but I had so much fun and in those tournaments and my team was what made it even ten times better to be a part of I get to play now in front of huge crowds and with all this spotlight and attention and I don't think I'll ever have that feeling that I did going through my you 14 national championship I remember winning state Cup I can tell you how I scored what the score was I remember going to Hawaii that was our regionals region four and I remember that national championship and I think that it stays with me so much because it was about camaraderie it was about growing and learning we were and you know making these lifelong bonds this tournament it's great competition I mean you just have to work all these teams are belong here all these things work together so the competition was fantastic and start to finish and when you get to play on a facility like this it makes it even more worthwhile traveling there six and a half hours to get here we sacrifice a lot time and like our summer so I really think that if we keep with that we'll be on pace for a great time in Nationals an overall great performance came out in the second half was able to close it out and get that regional victory that we were that we wanted benefits this level huge the college exposures second-to-none for these guys are all able to get recruited and achieve the goals that they want to and they set out to actually sign up to play club sports and make a team they're able to get those opportunities I think having something to play for is a real benefit to these goals not just showcases it's competition everyone wants to win that you play competitive sports because you want to win well this is the top league in the country all the best teams the best competition and that's what you want for your kids you know you wanted to work hard and achieve success against the best so they should be exciting boy they were tough they were a tough team and they had a lot of speed and so we weren't ready for that and they kept fighting and kept fighting and kept fight and we made a few mistakes in the back and then they came back and tied it up you know with seven eight minutes left in the game but it was it was a battle there is very strong competitive team it's a sweet victory because they really deserve it the girls were tired they were they were weak and they dug really deep they really did they really really fought for it everyone wants it so bad that we all get better from each other no matter the winner the loss we all want it the best feeling I've dreamed about this for a long time it's so exciting to be here very tough game we had to go into extra time to decide the the champion and our boys stuck it to the end and were able to come out with a victory today it's just an amazing feeling knowing you you scored the winning goal for the team you work so hard for this we all deserve this regionals is is where you'll find the best state champions come in

bit of motivation going into this year it's been crazy and it's just been like really hard because everybody here is so good and everybody is good could say when there's steak off and so are other ways to get in and so it's been really difficult but we pushed through and we were able to come out on top for us is a little difficult because we work with a lot of underprivileged kids because I

through a striker it was Joe Zak for PSA and it was Metzl for Lou fuse don't go away after a short break we will be right back here for the second half of this under 16 girls matchup here at the u.s. youth soccer national championships you it was 1935 the year that Elvis and Sandy Koufax it was a year of many firsts including the first NFL draft the first Monopoly board game went on sale Social Security began and Babe Ruth hit his last home run in addition to these milestones the National Junior Challenge Cup was founded in 1935 offering the youth competition for young men in the United States the cup was later named the James team of wire cup after the late US Soccer president who himself was quite a standout in his earlier days winning the US Open Cup in 1929 McGuire would lead US soccer and earn an international reputation as an excellent leader the firm acquired cup was started 1935 it was the only cup that the United States Soccer Federation had for youth players and it was a very good competition and I can tell you I mean it was the highlight of my soccer career to be a champion in 1954 this storied Cup now the oldest trophy in youth sport it has a history as a meaning I think he has tradition I think it's extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulates the mother water cup when in the mcguire cup is huge just because all that history that comes along with the oldest trophy and youth sports period that's really big for us we managed to Nationals and that was amazing because we were one of the best I think at the time was of four teams it was a round-robin actually so the best four teams in the whole nation and so we thought we were just the next best thing since sliced bread and I think that playing in that tournament was so surreal because you saw you played against other club teams that were so good and and at the same level as you that you you know don't necessarily always get the chance or opportunity to play against which was so great for us because we right wow these girls are at like just as good if not better and we have to compete at the highest level and play these three games or I thought yeah I was around Robins wood before but still that just reminds me of how competitive I was in my teammates were at that age which also I think helped me get to the next level and being that competitive at the club level I mean has only helped me you know continue to grow a competitive spirit and Louisville that I'm playing at right now the national championships was really really special I think that was like the biggest thing I had really won and that's kind of for you soccer growing up but was kind of the ultimate prize and I think we were always super ambitious and in achieving that and to have that happen and I think what's so special about youth soccer is that it's really your family the girls that you grow up with become like your sisters and and you do everything and there's just like such a strong camaraderie there so to play with the team that you play for for a while with and with these girls it's a very special feeling to win something those were really great moments because at such a young age I feel like I was competing for something and really working hard to you know perform for my team and it was no longer just about you know whatever the result is is the result I mean at the end of the day you know you win some you lose some but that was probably the moments that I was like whoa we got a win we got a state championship on our hands that we can actually bring home and I think those are really cool moments because you know you remember a lot of the times that you win you know you you try to remember the losses as well because you do learn from them but at the same time you you want to remember the wins that you have so state championships were definitely a really important part of my memory eras our state Cup was fun my team was very competitive I mean we had a lot of competition as well but I can't remember how many we want maybe nine I think is what we counted with with our team which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is win state cup go to regionals and go to Nationals we always fall short going to Nationals so it still hurts today to even talk about but I had so much fun and in those tournaments and my team was what made it even 10 times better to be a part of I get to play now in front of huge crowds and with all this spotlight and attention and I don't think I'll ever have that feeling that I did going
