Over 30 students participated last Friday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m., in Indoor Soccer Every Friday (ISEF), an club founded by former men’s soccer athlete, Valentin Reyes Cosme.
Cosme is a senior seminarian who’s love for soccer runs deep. ”I want to show my love for soccer by providing an opportunity for every soccer fan to participate, and have fun,” said Cosme. “Whether a participant is a learner or a pro, both are welcome to join and help build the community we need,” he said.
ISEF club began two years ago, but recently became more available to the public when Cosme created a Facebook page for it. Cosme admits that Tessa Scanlon, a senior Cardinal soccer player, came up with the idea.
The hopes for ISEF are for participants to have fun, exercise and establish a community on Campus. While the ISEF club is still growing, Cosme hopes that it becomes bigger so others can take over what he has started by making it available for everyone who wishes to play soccer.
The Hoang, a senior who participated in the ISEF last Friday said, “I like soccer, but I am not a soccer player, so every Friday I get an opportunity to play while I improve on my skills.” Hoang quoted Fr. A.C Fabian, saying, “You know good, better, best; never let it rest till the good become better, and better becomes the best.”
Every participant is required to dress indoor soccer gear, and ready to play with both men and women. Faculty and staff are also invited to participate. For more information, visit the Indoor Soccer Every Friday Facebook page.
