Coach Rod said last week that open tryouts for the kicking position would take place this Friday (tomorrow). Just a question of strategy here (sorry if this has been raised): If the NCAA Soccer semifinals are on Friday night in California, and the finals are on Sunday, would it not have been more strategic to hold the tryouts on Monday or Tuesday?
I can't imagine that there is not at least one kid on that championship level soccer team who would not tryout at least to help us finish out the season in a bowl. Even just a kickoff specialist with a big leg that can get it to the endzone. A good soccer player can do that easily and has already benen in competitive situations.
