TALLAHASSEE, FL. - WTXL — After a long 522 days off, the Tallahassee Soccer Club returned to action earlier today.
Continuing to spread the sport of soccer into a region that has long been absent of such a presence, this organization is creating opportunities for the sport to grow around the big bend and beyond. And in only their second season as a semi-professional organization, they feel the sky's the limit in terms of how they can influence the culture of soccer within their community.
“That’s what we’re trying to do here. We’re trying to not just make soccer in America better but make Tallahassee Soccer better and soccer on the individual level," says Tallahassee S.C. forward Zak Worms. "We’re trying to cover all of our fields because we understand that this game provides a beautiful experience, a beautiful atmosphere and we want to share that with everybody.
“I think because of the diversity of all the different backgrounds of where our players are coming from. There’s high school kids, there’s collegiate kids, there’s professionals who work nine to five each day, there’s 30-year old men out here," says head coach Josh Bruno. "So all of that being brought together, really makes it feel like this is something bigger than just soccer.”
