Aug. 13 — George Kee began his new job as the Lassen Community College men’s soccer coach last week and has already assembled a team and set high goals for the upcoming season.
Kee is originally from San Antonio, Texas where he has been playing and coaching soccer for the past several years.
Before becoming a coach, he played soccer as a child and in high school, then moved on to play four years in college in Austin, Texas. After college, he began coaching with a division of the United Soccer League Super-20 League.
While he has visited Southern California on vacations before, this is his first time in Northern California.
“It’s beautiful,” he said.
Kee started in his new position last Monday and began practicing with the team Tuesday. With the season starting at the end of this month, you might think Kee would be overwhelmed with the amount of work he has to do between now and then. However, he says it’s been a lot less stressful than one might expect.
