Watch out, David Beckham. There is a new freshmen soccer team at Cabrini this year, and these young players are hoping to turn heads by the end of their first season.

Freshmen athletes in any college have to deal with the new pressures and expectations placed by their coaches and opponents, but Cabrini’s youngest soccer team, guided by coach Doug Meder, already has a few qualified players hoping to conquer whatever challenges are put on them this year.

One of these guys is no. 19 defense marking back Jeffrey Carman, who is returning to the position he previously played at North Catholic High School in Philadelphia.

Despite the rush of playing for a fast-paced sport in a new college, the social atmosphere on the field can be tough for these young players to deal with.
