Some times in life you just have to take the good with the bad.
Logan McIsaac has a passion for soccer that has stayed with him since he kicked around the ball as a young boy in Stephenville, but he’s made the tough decision to put soccer on the shelf for now.
A speedster on the field, McIsaac opted not to continue his pursuit of police studies at Memorial University this year because he realized it’s not a field he wants to entertain anymore.
He has taken on a job in the capital city for now while he waits to see what’s in store for the future when it comes to his education. He will continue working until next fall when he will know if he will be pursuing one of two programs — a welding program at College of the North Atlantic or social work back at Memorial.
The Sea-Hawks varsity men’s season is almost done, but McIsaac has watched a lot of games online and it stirred up a lot of good memories of time spent with the team last season.
“It was a big decision to make because all growing up I’ve always been all about soccer,” he said. “No matter what I was doing soccer was always in the mix somewhere.
He suited up for Steers Insurance Corner Brook United FC in the provincial Challenge Cup soccer league this past summer and hopes to find his way back on the pitch again next summer.
If he ends up back at MUN next year, he won’t hesitate putting the cleats on again for another journey with the Sea-Hawks.
Until then, it’s all about paying the bills and waiting for some news on what his area of study will be forging ahead.
