Sueno MLS is down to the final 18 out here in SoCal. Most of the remaining players are teenagers, and most of them are in high school. I caught up with one of the players who had perhaps the most interesting story of the remaining players.
Jaime Lara, a senior at West Torrance HS, had the task of playing in a CIF final and trying out for Sueno MLS on the same day. In fact, it was slated for the same time so he had to skip the start of Sueno to play in the final and race to the tryouts afterward.
