Byron Addison learned of Ridgeland-Hardeeville’s soccer talent during lunch. Addison, the school’s boys soccer coach, would watch Jaguars Hector Guerrero, Louis Chavez and Kelin de Leon play pickup games during their lunch breaks and he’d see intensity and skill.
Addison played soccer for three years at Timberland but had never coached. He recognized the team had talent and understood the players were going to be serious about their sport.
“They’d go at it,” Addison said.
