Bill Mancebo's player spotlight: Liam Lambert
This week the spotlight finds 7-year-old Fremont resident Liam Lambert.
This young soccer expert plays for the FC Fremont league. In soccer Lambert covers the forward position, but as a baseball player he plays several positions and does this quite well. (He just moved up from t-ball to farm league based on his coach's recommendation.)
Outside of soccer, regular season baseball and NCLL fall ball, this active young man stays in top shape by showing up to not only his practice sessions but also his sister's soccer workouts. The fact that Liam likes any sport with a ball makes staying in peak condition an easy feat, and his father, who's a retired soccer pro, teaches Liam his best sports conditioning strategies.
Lambert attends Niles Elementary where he favors P.E. and math. He says that his teacher Ms. Westra is the reason that he likes school so much. With P.E. as a favorite subject and the advantage of his father's soccer experience, he's looking to become a pro soccer player himself someday soon.
When it's time to relax and have fun Liam likes to play on his Wii, hang out with Declan (his best friend and confidant) and enjoys family time being very close to his sister. Lambert also relishes his travels to Europe and looks forward to visiting his grandparents who live on the coast of the Baltic Sea (giving him a chance to speak the Swedish language that his mom taught him).
At the top of Liam's food list is pasta topped with cheese and butter or Mom's Swedish meatballs followed by Ballerinas, which are Swedish cookies.
