BOZEMAN -- Athletes have to get creative now about how they can participate in their favorite sports, and that certainly goes for the Bozeman Blitzz boys soccer team, which made a unique juggling video passing the ball to each teammate virtually. With no practices, it was a chance for them to still make time for each other.
“It’s really important for us to stay a community and stay being friends and stay connected with each other,” said Bozeman Blitzz player Brady Terry.
But the Blitzz didn’t start this trend. They were challenged by their counterparts.
“It started with the 2005 girls and then challenged the 2006 girls and they challenged us,” said Wilson Goodhue, who was behind editing all his teammates videos.
Each video built off another -- from cool tricks to juggling in ski boots to Drake Fricke hiking two hours to the peak of the Bridger Mountains for his portion of the video.
“I think I’m the only one who’s brought a soccer ball to the top of that mountain," Fricke laughed.
Although the video was all in good fun, the team says it served a bigger purpose.
“It’s really important for us to keep doing this just because we are going to high school tryouts next season so we need to stay connected," said eighth grader Kade Gravage. "So it’s really important for us to keep doing this.”
