At Gull Lake High School, there are multiple sports teams like football, basketball, baseball, soccer and many more. Like any other high school sports there are freshman, junior varsity and also a varsity team.
Matt Streitel has a lot of experience in coaching soccer, which is one reason he chose to be a coach.
“I loved high school soccer. I was 18 when I started soccer was what I knew, and I wanted to try and impact the guys that I was just playing with,” Streitel said. “I had a varsity coach that was a huge mentor for me, and I learned a ton that first year.”
Although Streitel has always had a passion for soccer, once he decided he didn’t want to play anymore, he said he decided to help other people follow their dreams with coaching soccer.
¨Keeping the chemistry of the team and making sure we ́re working together as a team,” he said. “There is a lot of different personalities out there, so that tends to become difficult at times.¨
Streital said that he loves that he gets to make a positive impact on the high school students.
