Another Familiar Face to Support the Boys in France as President Tim Schulz Arrives at Auxerre
Zack and Mal arrived at Auxerre early last week, accompanied by Technical Director, Erik Bushéy. But in an unfamiliar place, a familiar supporter from back home arrived, in the form of our President Tim Schulz. Mr. Schulz has arrived to further the business end of the unique relationship shared by Rush Soccer and AJ Auxerre. “It’s good to have the support of Tim here” said Foxhoven. Mal added, “without Tim none of this would be possible so I hope we can perform well during his stay.” The AJ Auxerre team lost a difficult match 2-0 this past weekend. The Reserve team that Zack and Mal have trained with tied their match 1-1. Training for the two boys has been light the last couple days, but will pick up in a big way on Tuesday starting with two-a-days again.  

(01.27.11)01.27.11-mal_and_zack_at_auxerreFor the last two days, Rush players Zack Foxhoven and Baboucarr Jammeh (Mal) have been in Auxerre, France training with the world renown club (and partner of Rush Soccer) AJ Auxerre (AJA). They have participated in sessions with AJA’s reserve side and U19 side. The two boys will remain in France until February 6 and will train twice a day most every day until they leave. In the coming days, the two boys will share some of their thoughts and feelings while participating in this wonderful soccer environment. Please stay tuned.
