Zephaniah Powell was not a week into his job as Amite’s head soccer coach when he got a firsthand glance at his blue-chip defensive tackle.
Powell, who was hired as Amite’s coach in 2015, scanned above his group of increasing freshmen and could not glance earlier Ishmael Sopsher. By the time the spring arrived, Sopsher proved his coach suitable.
“That spring, when he was an eighth-grader, when I was hired to just take the job above, I achieved with all those freshmen,” Powell recalled. “He (Sopsher) was a kid who stood out immensely. The first time we did spring drills with us, he stood out. I knew suitable then and there he’d be a distinctive kid for us.”
