continued from front page)Historically, CAL plays a very strong schedule and this year’s list of opponents reads like a“Who’s Who?” of the state’s best teams. Arguably, the 2012 schedule is the most difficult everfaced by the squad, adding in new top ranked opponents such as last year's State Champ NotreDame, Central Hardin, and Tate's Creek to a list of metro Louisville area soccer giants that include:Assumption, Sacred Heart, Manual, North Oldham, South Oldham, Oldham, Mercy, andcross river rivals, Providence and Floyd Central.This season, the once familiar path to the State Tournament has increased in difficulty as realignment moved CAL's district fromRegion 8 to Region 7. The “Road to State” that has historically run through the Oldham County Schools now travels through Assumption,Sacred Heart, and Manual.But perhaps the most challenging hurdle facing the squad is the loss of senior goalie and captain, Taylor Smith, to a shoulder injurythat required surgery in early August. Taylor has led the State the past two seasons with 26 shutouts including a record 15 in 2010and was named to the All-State team in both 2010 and 2011. Taylor has committed to play next year at the University of Louisvilleand will be fully recovered by the time she reports for training. While Taylor will be missed, the Lady Centurions are blessed withtwo outstanding sophomore goalies, Molly Andres and Corinne Warlick; both of whom are considered among state's best in theirU16 age group.CAL WINS OPENING SCRIMMAGE 10-0 AGAINST JOHN HARDINOn August 2, in Radcliff, KY, the varsity girls met John Hardin for a pre-season scrimmagethat provided a preview of the coming season. CAL seized control of the gameearly with a smothering defense that allowed no shots in either half and a high-octaneoffense that at times overwhelmed the home team. Junior Kenzie Dannelly scoredCAL’s first goal just eight minutes into the game, and freshman forward Haleigh Fortunaadded a second just two minutes later. Junior Lindsey Dunn and sophomoreSydney Mathis rounded out the first half scoring with goals that pushed the LadyCenturions to a 4-0-halftime lead.Haleigh Fortuna and Kenzie Dannelly got the second half off to a strong start addingtwo goals each for a commanding 8-0 lead with 15 minutes remaining in thegame. Junior Faith Shepherd added the 9 th goal on a towering shot from the leftsideline and sophomoreSarah Quinton added the final goal for a 10-0 lead and thegame was View called under CAL the High “mercy School rule” with 11:25 sports remaining LIVE, on the clock.

Stefan LeFors –Head Football Coach♦ Years at CAL: 2♦ Family: Wife, Joy; Son, Luke (5); Daughter, Ella (3)♦ Church: Northeast Christian Church♦ Sport(s) Played: Football♦ College(s) Attended: University of Louisville (2000-2004); Drafted byCarolina Panthers (2005); CFL (Canadian Football League) EdmontonEskimos (2007-2008); CFL Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2009)♦ Occupation: Scheduling Coordinator at CALHow did you come to CAL? I knew of CAL when I was playing at UL and it reminded me a lot of my high school. I had met peoplefrom CAL and always thought it was a great place. We moved back to Louisville in 2010 and I was training quarterbacks on theweekends and one was a CAL family. They mentioned the job opening and how great it would be to have me at CAL and I wentfor it.What do you love most about coaching football ? The competitiveness of it. Since I can’t play any longer, I enjoy the chess matchpart of the game. I enjoy seeing the kids mature and grow on and off the field. Football teaches discipline and toughness. Thoseare life lessons I learned and made me who I am today. I want to share that with the our guys.How long have you played football? Since I was 7 or 8 years old.How has God used football in your life to draw you closer to him? I started school younger than everyone else and had always attendedpublic school. When I was in 8th grade, my dad decided he wanted to hold me back so I wouldn’t graduate at the age of 17.My school wouldn’t allow me to play football a 4th year so my parents moved me to Christian Life Academy in Baton Rouge. Itwas supposed to be a one year gig but the school was on fire for God and it really opened my eyes. God’s calling came throughathletics. It was a part of the path God had laid out for me.How do you use football to disciple your players? The discipline and teamwork of football makes guys more comfortable to openup spiritually. Respect is there and it allows the guys to be more open to listen. Our staff does a great job of being intentional withour players.What are you most excited about this season? Expectations are high and I’m excited to see how our team responds to that. I’veasked the team about their identity. Our senior leadership is strong and I’m anxious to see where they will take us.How do you try to be distinctive as a team? We pray with opposing teams after games and the response from other coaches hasbeen positive. Last year we gave all opposing coaches Tony Dungy’s book with a note. They notice something is different aboutCAL.View CAL High School sports LIVE,Best Superbowl matchup?

continued from front page)South Oldham took the field without their usual prowess and polish, whileCAL clicked immediately with quick, accurate play, attacking, advancingand denying the Dragons any attempt at scoring. However, in the second halfthe tables turned as South Oldham regainedtheir composure and began a ferocious assaultagainst the Centurion defense. CALwas able to deflect the onslaught of Dragonballs with a lot of creative, defensive teamwork. Both teams had several runsand shots on goal but nobody could connect before the lightning shut downthe field.On Saturday, CAL traveled to Radcliff to take on the North HardinHigh School Trojans and came away with a 3 – 0 win.
