I've written before about Leif's soccer abilities and teams but haven't posted these photos of him in his first soccer uniform.
Leif first played soccer when he was in kindergarten, in Japan His dad was the team coach. They played all their games at Camp Zama. Leif played fullback or goalie. As the tallest kid on the team, and the one with the strongest kick, as well as having no fear of the ball, he played those positions well.
The team had a winning season and that started Leif on a 10 year soccer "career" that continued until we moved to Puerto Rico when he was 15 and beginning his sophomore year of high school.
