HARRINGTON - The high school football field was a palette of color as kids in Lincoln County's new youth soccer league honed their skills in games Saturday, May 13.
"We have 175 kids between the ages of five and seven participating on 17 teams from Davenport, Wilbur, Harrington, Reardan and Odessa," league president Jon Evans said.
Evans, a deputy with the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, started the league out of his love for basketball.
"Kobe Bryant said, 'Soccer transitions to basketball,'" Evans said.
Evans' desire is for each participant to develop good character traits.
