In late June high school soccer players, coaches and fans in Washington state look forward to hearing from the Washington State Soccer Coaches Association as they reveal the All State teams in boy’s soccer. This year that list has not been sent. Now we know why.
Royal High School soccer coach Jens Jensen (Royal City, Washington), compiles and sends out the list. He has suffered a great personal tragedy. Jens tells us via email:
“There is no nice way to say this, but my wife passed away a couple weeks ago and while the all state lists are on my to-do list, I have not been able to circle back to it just yet. I will get it done, but it may not be immediate.”
The Washington soccer community mourns with the Jensen family and wishes for healing and peace to surround them.
The Royal High School Facebook page posted this story from Jens about Emily.
