On behalf of local soccer parents and players, thank you very much for the Alle-Kiski boys soccer preview (Aug. 28).

The high school boys and girls soccer teams should be recognized for their hard work, dedication and skill level that do not compare to any other sport. Soccer players often do not get the credit nor respect they definitely deserve. The conditioning and stamina required to play a soccer game are noteworthy.

The only protection in soccer is shin guards, and games have a very high level of contact. These players are strong and very competitive — and the games can get very rough.

Soccer is often overlooked and does not receive the exposure it deserves. Thanks again for the great story.

I look forward to — and so do other soccer parents, players, and fans — more stories focusing on the game of soccer!
