The new Dobie Jr. High boy’s soccer team 2016-2017 has almost come to an end for CJ Dake, 7th grader, as he finishes off the year with an outstanding record of 5 goals. CJ started playing soccer at the age of 4, and has loved it ever since.

CJ plays forward/striker in all of his games since he was young.

“Soccer is important to me because I’m good at it and played since I was young,” said CJ. CJ plans on playing next year, because he feels the team will improve.

Cole Corder, 7th grader, said “CJ works hard and never gives up until he reaches his goals.”

“At practice we mostly did drills and scrimmaged to get our skill level up,” said CJ.

Other than practicing and playing for Dobie, CJ also plays for an outside league.

CJ practices for his outside league and on his own time, squeezing practicing by his own into his busy schedule.

“My favorite part about the team is going to practice with all of my friends,” said CJ.The soccer team practices every day after school on the Dobie fields.

“The soccer season was very challenging because this was our first year for us to play together, but I feel we did our best and I created many goal opportunities,” said CJ.

“CJ was a very good team add on, he kept us on task and communicating in games,” said Cole.

“One of my favorite memories with the team is when we won one of our first games,” said CJ.

Cole also stated that CJ had a very big skill level for soccer and was one of Dobie’s best soccer players on the team.

“As the new sports season comes to an end CJ will definitely be remembered as a great teammate and a good leader for the team,” said coach Wallrich.
