September’s Soccer Parent of the Month

Meet September’s Soccer Parent of the Month: Brett Cochrane, Millet, Alberta

Brett’s favourite COBS Recipe from cobsbread.com is Bacon & Mozarella Open Grill

Millet Soccer met Brett last year as part of our field set up day. We were new to soccer and were completely fretting about how to make the fields square and correct. Along comes Brett, surveyor by trade, and he saved the day…well two days really since it took us two days to complete all our field markings and painting. During this season’s registration process, our board was just waiting for Brett’s family to walk in the door. We knew we wanted his help again. As he walked in the door, we all cheered (he must have felt like a rock star). He was bombarded by us asking if he’d help again with the lines. “Of course,” he said, but this year he wanted to do prep work so it could all get done in one day. I put him in touch with our field coordinator, and Brett set out a week in advance to mark the fields. The day came when the work was to happen and for the first time in Millet Soccer history, our 7 fields were marked and painted in one 8 hour day. He truly was a blessing for Millet Soccer.

Congratulations Brett on behalf of COBS Bread and Alberta Soccer!
