WARREN — The 2017 edition of the Warren Cousino boys soccer team put the program’s recent struggles in the rearview mirror.

“The Mustang soccer program is not about one person. It’s about the team, and if the team doesn’t perform well, it goes home,” said Horvath, whose team ended the regular season with a 3-9-2 mark. “We, of course, expect our seniors to play well and with great urgency, as this is their last opportunity.”

CLAWSON — He’s a Clawson High grad back with the program he played for.

But now, as he paces the sideline of the Trojans’ soccer team, his goal and mission comes from a whole new perspective.

When former coach Jared Kullman took the athletic director position at Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes, Jugon was a natural fit to move from assistant coach to head coach.
