The Elizabethtown-Lewis boys varsity soccer program has been here before.

The Lions will be coping with the need to fill several spots in a lineup that was senior-laden in 2011, and head coach Paul Buehler believes he has a group of players that will do that as the season progresses.

“We expect to improve throughout the entire season,” Buehler said. “The team is younger than in most seasons and we have many players that have never played or have not played since they were much younger. That being said, we are very optimistic. The pre-season has been exciting to watch as players improve and develop. We have been joined by a few outstanding athletes that are quickly becoming soccer players.”

Buehler said that the core of the team will include four players who saw significant minutes last season, including starters Brody Hooper and Charlie Huttig, along with Austin Morris and Justin LaPier. LaPier was the starting goalie for the Lions two years ago and backed up keeper Brock Marvin in 2011.

“Some younger players will be looking to make their mark are Isaiah Turner, Wesley Whalen, Caleb Denton and Will Tomkins, all looking to earn a starting position,” Buehler said. “Also, we have some newcomers like Hugh Harwood, Zac Noka-Bailey, Cortland White and Cody Gowdy that have quickly become soccer players.”
