On the field, Max can hold his own: he's somewhat aggressive, he's fairly fast, and he can kick the ball around pretty well, but I wouldn't say he's a huge stand out. That all changed when Max was put in goal. Without any training or coaching, he threw himself on the ball, he dove to make a save, and he booted it three-quarters down the field. I'm not exaggerating when I say that parents ON THE OTHER TEAM will approach me after the game to remark about what a great goalie Max is. It stresses me out to watch him play in that position, but he LOVES it. At his request, we've moved him up to play on a competitive team in a higher age level next year. Yikes!
