The Long Lake/Indian Lake boys soccer team is entering its third year under the guidance of coach Jim Piraino.
The team is focused on conditioning in training right now, said Piraino. He's working them back into playing with exercises that get their muscles back into the game and the cobwebs out of their heads.
Piraino has coached a total of seven years of soccer, a little more than half of it at the modified level.
He said he didn't want to give too much about his team away before the season begins. The Orange squad is young, with only four seniors, though Piraino said he's excited to work with them.
“We're a young team, a team that's willing to learn and grow,” he said.
As long as the team gets it together for the season and puts in the practice time, they should be competitive, said Piraino.
The offense will be lead by strikers Dalton Aldous, Henry Sandiford, Damon Gagnier, Shane Sort and Curtis Seaman.
The defense is a strong point, said Piraino. Goalie Zack Ruland will be working with alternate goalies Rudy Giessen and Tom Torren.
The squad's fullbacks are Sam Miller, Robert Miller, Seth Hart and Chaiten Giessen.
Playing the midfield are Tucker Benton, Taylor Wells, Kevin Boya, Kyle Lock, Kyle Douglas, Matt Moore and Arthur Jennings.
