Extractions: by Coach George A. Lasher Introduction The previous section discussed ways for individuals, and then small groups, to achieve possession of the ball and then to maintain it by effective shielding. This section amplifies on this skill to explain the team concept of possessing the ball. The first order of business is to increase the technical skill level of our players. We must get them comfortable in playing with their back to the goal in middle and attacking thirds of the field. In order to do this we will progress through a series of exercises where they are exposed to constantly increasing levels of pressure until they can perform the footskill and first touch techniques automatically.

Extractions: July 5, 2001 Of its many pastimes, soccer has always been not only near and dear, but has served as a rallying point and center of gravity for bringing Liberians from all walks of life together. Other less popular sports such as basketball, tennis, volleyball and kickball for women, have been important but soccer has been the "people's sport." Even amid its war legacy, its deteriorating political and economic situation, and its international isolation, soccer has become the country's only silver lining. With the country being cast with a pariah status by the international community, the United Nations, for Liberia's role in fomenting the civil war in Sierra Leone, and bringing grief and suffering to the people of the West African sub-region, its only shining light on the world scene has been soccer. Wherever Liberians have gone - fleeing war and seeking refuge in foreign countries, soccer has always served as the glue that holds them together. In refugee camps in Ghana, Nigeria and other places Liberians have settled, soccer has played a crucial role in connecting Liberians irrespective of their status in life. Even here in the United States that has become home to tens of thousands of Liberians, many seeking permanent status, they have found a way to come together and celebrate through the annual July 26th I. E. Vs. Barrolle Soccer tournament. Historically, the two leading soccer giants with their extended fans and supporters here in the US, have established this annual tradition to bring Liberians from all parts of the US together to celebrate in the spirit of unity and nationhood.
