Indian Land High boys soccer coach Adam Cole doesn’t mince words when he discusses the Warriors’ hopes for the 2012 season.
Cole and the Warriors are hoping to land the school’s first-ever state soccer championship this spring.
A year ago, Indiand Land came close, finishing as the Class AA Upper State runner-up to Gilbert High School.
The Warriors finished 20-5 after falling to the GHS Indians.
Buford first-year varsity soccer coach John Bundy said the Jackets’ 2012 success will likely hinge on the play of the veteran players and the development of the younger players.
“Our team has a wide range of players, and will rely heavily on their experience in the program from our seniors down to our two freshmen,” said Bundy.
The BHS co-captains are senior left center mid Tyler Jenkins and senior keeper Matt Ellis, the MVP last season when the Jackets went 6-11 and earned a playoff berth.
