Boys soccer cuts create “competitive” team
September 20, 2018
Heading into the 2018-2019 soccer season, the boys’ soccer team tryouts were packed. A staggering 108 student-athletes signed up to prove their skills in front of head coach Pablo Dipascuale. 35 of the 108 students (roughly 32 percent) who tried out did not make one of Lincoln’s four teams.
Wyatt Jenkerson is going into his third season as a varsity soccer player and said, “it creates an environment that’s very competitive because everyone knows that spots are limited on the program. Especially for freshman who are trying out for the first time with the coaching staff that doesn’t know them.”
“We look for a combination of dedication, effort, commitment, work ethic, fitness, skill level and buy-in to the team-centered culture we are trying to foster in the men’s soccer program,” said Dipascuale.
