The local field of boys' soccer teams has been reduced by one, as Bellarmine-Jefferson High will not field a team this season.
However, for the other three teams, Burroughs, Burbank and Providence, they all have their share of talented players who they hope will lead them to success.
The Indians are coming off a season in which they captured a Pacific League championship and advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinals.
Providence had a successful 2012-13 campaign as well. In fact, it was historic. The Pioneers clinched the program's first Liberty League title. However, the team couldn't keep the momentum going in the postseason, losing in the first round.
The Bulldogs didn't qualify for the playoff a year ago, finishing sixth in the Pacific League.
With the season beginning this week, here is a closer look at the teams.
Although the Indians (15-7-3 last season) lost three All-CIF Southern Section players to graduation, the team still has its share of talented players returning.
