  • What They're Saying: Bill Taylor

    "The real world, as soon as you step outside of Idaho, plays a much different style of soccer. ... That’s why they come. That’s the reason why they invest the time and money and effort, because the likelihood of getting into a college is slim to none being in Twin Falls. Playing for us, he has eyes on him now.”

    -- Bill Taylor, head coach of the Boise Nationals Timbers and president of the Idaho Youth Soccer Association, on Caden Zierenberg, who moved in with Taylor in February to cut down on travel from Twin Falls. Zierenberg's parents still commute from Twin Falls to Boise two hours each way three-to-four times a week so all four of their children can play competitive soccer in an area that produces more opportunities than in Twin Falls. They drive about 29,000 miles a year, just for practices, and spent more than $10,000 per year on youth soccer. (Idaho Statesman)
