Mario Sadler has a talented group of young soccer players on the Halifax County High School jayvee boys squad.

“I’m very excited about the season. We are very young in age but they are far beyond their age in their soccer ability,” Sadler said.

The Comets have an 18-man roster. The returnees are Jakob Markham, Leggett Moore, Charles Crenshaw, Caleb Daniel, Kalamente Poloa and Sergio Regalado.

“We only have six returners from last year’s team; 11 eighth graders; four freshmen and three sophomores,” said Sadler.

“My expectations for this year’s team are very high. We also have a lot of depth at all positions because most of the guys can play anywhere,” Sadler said.

“The best thing about it is that during practice “I’m just fine tuning their skills unlike before when I had to start from the bottom and work my way up. We didn’t have much talent due to some of the players never playing the game.

“This year the foundation is there. It’s just building on to that. This should be a good group of core guys to build a successful program around,” Sadler said.
