Synopsis

Writing with the same descriptive flair that has won his novels so much praise, W. D. Wetherell tells the true story of his high-school-age sons winning soccer season. Soccer Dad is simultaneously the candid reflections of a devoted father and the enthusiastic observations of a diehard soccer fan.When Matt enters his senior year of high school, it is not without myriad parenting concerns on the part of his father, author W. D. Wetherell. What is his role in shaping his sons future? What will life be like when Matt is away at college? And what of Matts soccer season?Is Matts success in soccer just setting him up for disappointment later in life? With the pensive eye of an artist, Wetherell follows his sons team from field to field and win to win and ruminates on topics ranging from soccers esoteric appeal in America to the conflicting emotions of a parent sending his youngest child out into the world. Reflecting on his own experiences both as a participant and a spectator, Wetherell offers a paean to the sport of soccer and the joys of parenthood.
