NJ High School Soccer Coach of the Year!

Congratulations to Elizabeth High Soccer Coach Joe Cortico. This was no easy task-3 of the top ten teams in the state are in our conference. Joe created a battle hardened team that physically & mentally wore even the best teams down. If you have never coached in an urban environment like this, it's difficult to understand the unique challenges that it presents.

One side note that I can't understand. In an obvious attempt to bore us to death, our impromptu "soccer band" was squelched by the grinch who stole soccer. I'm not sure who was responsible. What a show! High school students singing & playing Spanish tunes & dancing salsa in the stands waving the EHS banner. It definitely added to the experience.
