A message from Coach Kramer!

Boys Soccer 2019


The 2019 Keefe Tech Boys Soccer team is having a terrific season thus far. With nearly 30 plus players coming out for the team in August, the program is doing well fielding both a strong JV and varsity team.


This year’s varsity team is made up of players representing all grades. Leading the way for the Keefe Tech Broncos are senior tri-captains, Harry Oliviera, Andre Rubert and Jorge Tobon. Also helping the Broncos enjoy success is senior Said Nunez, who currently leads all scorers on the team with 16 goals and 7 assists.


With only a few weeks remaining in the regular season, the varsity team has hopes of making it to the State Vocational Tournament. With a current 10-5 record and three home games remaining, the Broncos have already earned a berth in the Central Massachusetts State tourney. The team hopes to make a deep run into this year’s State Championships.
