First-year coach Richard Hickson is looking to put his mark on the girls' soccer program at Brien McMahon High.
Hickson, a former Westhill High assistant coach, is a full-time soccer teacher for NOGA Soccer, a company that trains coaches and runs clinics in Connecticut and New York.
He's bringing his extensive knowledge to bear on the girls' team.
"We've been working a lot on trying to build our shapes and our formations, so I think that's going to be a strength of ours and enable us to get some results," said Hickson, who also has coached in England.
"It's nice to have a few left-footed players to give your team balance," Hickson said.
He's not sure yet who'll be his goalie, but said several players were in contention.
