On any Friday night at Denison Park over 100 Eastside Kickers gather to work on footskills. From age 7 to 11 Aidan Wolf, current Heights High 9 th grader, always attended the Friday night sessions where he worked on his ‘ moves’ over and over again. Nobody worked harder at footskills than Aidan. On August 13 Aidan’s relentless hard work was rewarded when US Soccer announced the 36 players invited to the U 14 National Youth Camp in Portland, Or. Sure enough, on the list from Cleveland Heights Ohio was the name Aidan Wolf. When the USA National Team lined up for a friendly against the Seattle Sounders our former Eastside Kicker, Aidan Wulf, took his spot as the attacking center midfielder. A huge congratulations to Aidan and a reminder to our ESK family of the value of Friday Night Footskills.
