When new Gig Harbor High School boys’ soccer coach Joe Ross was a high schooler at Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma in the ’80s, he spent his time on the baseball diamond.
It wasn’t until he had children, years later, that he took a liking to soccer.
“Out of all the sports my kids tried out for, soccer was their favorite,” Ross said. “So when they started, I began reading about soccer. About a year, two years into it, I got hooked into it.”
