Murad interview

Murad interview

Soccer (or Football everywhere else that isn’t the United States) is one of the world’s most popular sports. Every year, millions of fans tune into the games or even go across the world to see the World Cup. It’s no surprise that there are plenty of skilled soccer players at our school that are a part of ACP’s Varsity Soccer Team. We decided to sit down with Murad Alhassen, a member of the Varsity Team to ask what it’s like to be a part of the team.

Q: How hard is it to make it into varsity soccer?

A: It’s pretty balanced. If you are decent at soccer, can run long distances, and have motivation, you can make it on the team.

Q: How many people are on the varsity team?

A: We carry around 22 or 23, depending on the circumstances

Q: How has the season gone so far?

A: The season is going very good; we’ve been competing in tournaments in 6A teams, and for our league games, we’ve done really well, and that was to the former state champs

Q: How much practice do you have to do a week for the team?

A: Every day practices range for about three to four hours a day. It’s a lot of drills, strategizing how to play against teams, and film breakdown.

Q: How do you like being on varsity?

A: Varsity is really fun; I think we can go really far this season, and I’m really proud of the guys on the team.

Interviewing Murad was really fun because of his incredibly positive attitude and his strive for excellence on the team. If anyone reading this is inspired to join Varsity Soccer, you can tryout next school year in December. Go Knights!
