Entering high school is always a drastic step in a teen’s life. There is a vast increase in students and the pressure is multiplied. You’re getting lost around every corner and there is the added stress of making new friends and sometimes losing old ones. Fortunately, freshman Seth Brown isn’t showing the slightest sign of a problem…in fact, he’s kicking his way to victory as one of two freshmen on the varsity boys soccer team – an accomplishment that is rare.

Brown has been playing soccer for eight years, along with his two older brothers, LC-M Alumni Josh Brown and junior Tyler Brown. He plays soccer as much as he can outside of school and spends his Sundays at the soccer fields around Orange and sometimes in Beaumont.

“The thing I love most about soccer is that feeling when you beat a good team,” Brown said.

Entering high school is a challenge, but 14-year-old Brown shrugs it off and said the real challenge comes from being the youngest member of the team. According to Brown, there is always going to be pressure when the other players are older, stronger and more experienced.

“It makes me feel like I have to play up to their skill level,” Brown said. “I feel like there is pressure on me to not get picked on or pushed around.”

Brown practices with his team four to five times a week after school until 5:30 to prepare for tough opponents and he usually plays between 15-60 minutes per game.

“We play against bigger teams,” Brown said. “They don’t expect me to play rough.”

According to Brown, all of the soccer team members are close off-field as well as on the field and being able to be part of the group is something that has had a big impact on him.
