This is circa 1970. 38 years ago (holy crap). 9th grade soccer team, Roosevelt Junior High School, Westfield, NJ. The bleachers were on the football field. The soccer team team didn’t have bleachers. Hell, we didn’t even have a regulation size soccer field. I forget the dimensions but it was about 80% of the size of a normal field. I think that’s why we won so many games. Other schools would come and get seriously fucked up kicking the ball into the next township.
Let’s face it…who the hell ever heard of soccer in 1970? Sure, now it’s all the rage but back then it was tough to get a ten school schedule put together. The white haired gent on the left is the late Whitey Holck; soccer coach, guidance counselor and pipe smoker. I dated his daughter for awhile in 8th grade…she was in 9th…ahh always the older women…
There are three guys whose names I can’t come up with, and one I’m only kind of sure about. Not bad after almost 40 years.
Oh. And in case you were wondering or hadn’t guessed….number 24.
