Hernandez Marco Sanchez Jimmy Gaus Michael Kawazoe Eric Kennedy Mlkey Busies Ryan Rogers and RydeT McDonald Local support for soccer team still low despite recent success By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer There are no soldout stadiums no bands no pep rallies not even a pep squad There is just the field the ball and in the stands a group of loyal fans the most loyal of allparents Jodi McDonald is one of those parents Her son Ryder is one of the main players on the New Braunfels Unicom soccer team one of the four best teams in the state But this is Texas Football country or per haps even baseball basketball or track country compared to soccer Fans dont come to games despite the fact the Unicorns have won the regional title two straight years It is left to the parent to do it all In addition to simply attending a game driving many miles in many years the parents decorate the bus clean the bus decorate fhe players rooms at home and maybe clean them as well Jodi even writes the game stories for the Herald Zeitung The parents got together and formed a soc cer booster said Jodi The cheerleaders have made the effort to come to games and cheer this year even though there is haidly anyone in the stands They dont give Players like Ryder are used to the scene The players know the parents will be in the stands just like Jodi has been since Ryder was four and they know that will be about it Still you would think it would bother them Not says Ryder Were pretty much used to it I think maybe we should get a little more support It would really fire us up and maybe make us play While soccer is the most popular sport in the world that world hasnt quite reached the United States Ryder said the game is sometimes too low scoring for those who dont understand it The high school season also comes during winter not a good time for outdoor sports Just ask any parent who has been in the stands We know that contributes to the lack of said Jodi Football is in the fall base ball is in the spring and basketball is indoors so that doesnt really matter Were stuck in the worst time of the Things are picking up however Winning helps with that And Jodi said a strong youth soccer program here has helped build support The local pro gram is funding two college scholarships for the seniors this year I think were getting more support than last said Ryder The team is finally coming together I think well do better this One thing is certain as certain as the ball is round a parent will be in the stands this week end and the teenagers who play will recognize this devotion with utmost appreciation just like all teenagers do Just like Ryder does he said pausing I guess we appre ciate Kellee Cherry to represent Comal County at Miss Texas USA event New Braunfels resident to compete in
