My wife and I were a recent 10-year resident of Viroqua and observed many positive and constructive economic, social and educational developments of this hospitable and collegial town. This year during our annual visit we had the privilege to witness an exciting soccer game of Driftless United, one of the region’s premier youth development programs.

My wife and I were active grandparent attendees in the embryonic and successful development of this community’s youth soccer program. Our grandson began when the program was in its infancy and continues today in a dynamic and highly successful program that is highlighted with the team appropriately named, Driftless United.

We are grateful for the Vernon County Broadcaster’s recent article about the undefeated season of Driftless United.

Today there are over 40 area youth from the diverse major schools of the community as active participants in this victorious team coached by highly motivated and knowledgeable adults and strongly supported by parents and fans. This fall over 100 youth are active in various levels of local soccer program development in one of the fastest and largest national youth sport programs. This season the Driftless United team plays on a newly expanded soccer field adjacent to the supportive Viroqua Area Schools and nearby other sports facilities.

We are grateful for the Vernon County Broadcaster’s recent article about the undefeated season of Driftless United.

I urge the Driftless Region to get “united” behind this rewarding program and hope the local news media will continue to increase its coverage and reporting of Driftless United, one of the community’s “crown jewels.”

Henry “Hank” Deutsch, Memphis, Tennessee
