However, Reed failed to make clear one thing that all of Steinbrecher's players, past and present, would agree upon—not only does he teach his athletes a lot about soccer, but he also teaches them a lot about life. That kind of ability and insight is increasingly hard to find in top-level sports.
Instead of writing about a team largely made up of foreigners, why not write of the schools with American talent—the University of Connecticut, for instance? Not only is it an all-American team but the majority of the players come from in-state. Joseph P. Morrone is one of the most respected coaches in college soccer, and his Huskies, as of this writing in mid-November, are ranked third in the nation with a record of 19-1 and a 17-game winning streak. The two schools ranked above them, the University of San Francisco and Alabama A&M, are both totally dependent on foreigners.
You ought to show your readers—and young soccer players—that good, exciting college soccer need not rely on a multinational scheme.

THE NAME OF THE GAME
The LPGA did not change the Colgate-Dinah Shore Winners Circle to the Colgate-Dinah Shore (VIEWPOINT, Nov. 10). This Association does not have the power to do that. However, the sponsor, the Colgate-Palmolive Company, made a corporate decision to shorten the name to Colgate-Dinah Shore to follow the Associated Press' new guidelines that stipulate clean and precise titles.
