Yeah, I love to watch my kids play soccer. This was Thomas, my youngest,just before the game in which the Knoxville Impact Under 18 Boys won the Central Premier League. This is a high level league in which the State champions from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabam, and Tennessee play each other. The winner goes to the Regional Championships in Oklahoma next June.
When the new National rankings come out, The Impact should move into the top 25 teams in the nation, since they are undefeated this season and have beaten two top thirty teams already this year. Thomas is the Starting Midfielder, for those of you who know what that means.
This is from the next morning's game and shows Thomas watching Tyler get hammered while trying to win the ball in the air. Minutes later Thomas scored the game's first goal on the way to dominating the Alabama team 6-1.
