TEMPLETON — The Templeton youth soccer all-star programs just concluded a season of mythical proportions. Following the end of the regular youth season in November, all of the coaches in the leagues get together and determine who should be in all-stars and the teams are drafted. From this Templeton created five “A” teams who collectively posted a 74-1-3 record en route to 19 tournament victories all while outscoring their opponents, 353-26.
Of the five “A” teams created there were two on the boy's side and three on the girls in three different age groups. The two boys teams were made up of one team in the under 10 division coached by Aaron Penner and one in the under 12 division coached by Brad Rubin and Jason Carvalho. The girls also had a team in the under 10 division and under 12, the former coached by Casey Ogle and John Fiorenza and the latter coached by Charlie Thomas, Sarah Kennedy
Each of the five teams traveled to three tournaments close to the area with the first of the tournaments being the SouthBay shootout (Los Osos), the second being the Orcutt Cup Classic and the third being the Santa Maria Strawberry Cup. Four of the five teams then traveled to the Cal South Tournament of All-star to really put their skills to the test and didn't disappoint, the under 10 boys were the only team not to attend.

“There has never been an All-Star season like this in the 15 years that I’ve been here,” said Melissa Johnson, the head of the Templeton Rec Department and Youth Sports. “I’m going to have to build a new trophy case just to celebrate the success of these young players and their coaches. The hard work and dedication these kids and coaches have shown
Nearly, if not all, of the boys and girls on these soccer teams will be former Eagles that will soon join the Templeton Eagle soccer program that just brought home league titles in both the boys and girls side and are currently in the playoffs this week.
