The Duncanville Panthers boys soccer team is currently in their mid season stride. We caught up with head coach Nuno Passos to discuss the season.
How do feel the team has performed this season and what do you think you need to work on?
I am very proud of the team’s performance this year. We are currently undefeated through the first 18 games at 15 wins and 3 draws. You can look across the state and there are very few teams still undefeated on the season. We need to work on getting healthy before the playoffs as we have had 3-4 starters out recently to injuries.
Who are your standout performers and why?
This year defensively the team has received excellent play from Andres Santos, Eric Chacon and Ryan Evans. Offensively the team has been led by Alex Herrera and freshmen Johnathan Martinez.
What have you learn about your team this so far?
I’ve learned that this team works hard, plays with passion and is a very resilient team that somehow they find a way to win.
What is up next for the team?
The team has 6 games to play before heading to the playoffs and it is seeking and determined to win the schools 25th District Championship this year.
