Soccer has made strides in the United States from the overall participation at the youth level to the interest of the casual fan.
Even though Wisconsin and the midwest in general isn't really known for producing premiere talent, two players who grew up right here in the Green Bay area have brought the game to a new level.

Channel 5's Burke Griffin caught up with former Bay Port Pirate Jay Demerit, and former Notre Dame Triton Lauren Sesselmann, who have found success on the national and world stages on the soccer field.
