Out Wide: North Texas Soccer
By Brad Namdar, email@example.com
This week Out Wide is taking a look back at Jacob Wilner, an FC Dallas U-17 player, who played in this years Dallas Cup. Jacob was exited and looking forward to playing is his first ever Dallas Cup match, and now a week and a half later, he has officially been apart of this prestigious tournament.
Wilner's team did not do as well as they had hoped. FC Dallas U-17 premier had only lost two games the entire season, and in the Dallas Cup won only one our of its three matches in the preliminary stages.
Here is a question and answer session with Wilner:
Out Wide: What was the opening ceremony like?
Jacob: It was amazing there were so many teams from all over the world and there were so many fans. I honestly felt like all the hard work I have done had paid off at that moment.
Out Wide: The first game you played in what was it like?
Jacob: To be honest I didn’t think I was going in. I didn’t play in the first game, the second game we were loosing 1-0, and my coach told me to warm-up. I was stunned but got to go in for 15 minutes. When I ran on the field I told myself this is just like any other game, but of course, it wasn’t.
Out Wide: Even though the tournament didn’t turn out the way you imagined how do you feel looking back?
Jacob: Of course you want to win it, but the most important thing for me personally was being a apart of this tournament and its history. I think we could have won all the games we played in, but… that’s soccer.
Out Wide: What was your favorite moment of the Dallas Cup.
Jacob: The opening ceremony and me running onto the field for my first appearance.
