Big Bear soccer player of the week, Jan. 15, 2020

Big Bear sophomore Abraham Celis has been a key player for the Bears in the midfield this season.

It’s been a challenging season for the Big Bear High School varsity boys soccer team. The challenge begins and ends with the lingering question — how does a primarily freshman team handle the pressure of playing against bigger and more experienced teams? Big Bear has 11 freshmen on its varsity roster.

First-year head coach Fredy Diaz said his young team is handling it well for the most part. The key is to focus on getting better not on the final score.

“We focus on the good stuff — that’s a good pass, a good run,” Diaz said. “We’ve got a lot of young players, and they’ve shown improvement especially in the past couple of weeks. They’ve seen it as well.”
