Southfield High Taps
Maccabi Soccer Coach

L

ike the U.S. Marines,
Gabriel Attar is look-
ing for a few good men
— but not for military service.
Attar wants them to play
Bluejays soccer for him at
Southfield High School.
Attar, 38, a former Israeli
National Team player who
coached the Detroit Junior
Maccabi soccer team the last
three years, has been on the
recruiting path since becom-
ing soccer coach at SHS on
Aug. 16.
In succeeding Wally Barrett
as head coach, Attar took over
a team that reached the state
semifinals two years ago and

the regionals last season but
was hard-hit by graduations
(all-stater Ya Mok and all-
league Jason Goldsmith) and
a transfer to another school
(all-stater John Petoskey).
"I'm trying to recruit more
players but don't know where
to go to find them," says At-
tar, who feels part of the pro-
blem is the widespread at-
titude, "If I can't play football,
maybe I can play soccer."
The truth is the opposite,
says the man from Petah
Tikvah who was a teenage
midfielder on the Israeli team
that, in 1969, upset both the
then-defending world cham-
pion Chelsea, England, and
the Soviet Union in a Cannes,
France, tournament.

"It's very difficult to play
soccer," he says. "You have to
have a lot of fitness, a lot of
skill, and most important,
you have to be smart.
"You can control your hand
(as in throwing a baseball or
football) much more easily
than you can your leg; it
takes longer for the message
to go from the brain to the leg.
Soccer is really a brain game."
It's also second only to
ballet in providing fitness and
endurance, says Attar, who
had rheumatic fever as a
child. The boy loved soccer;
his doctor let him play and by
the time Attar entered the
Israeli military, "The army
told me I was healthy as an

"In soccer, you've got to play
45 minutes straight; then you
get a 15-minute break; then
you play another 45 minutes.
There's bumping, hitting,
tackling — someone's always
hitting on you, but you have
to have" endurance and main-
tain ball control in spite of all
that, he says.
Art Carinci, SHS athletic
director, acknowledges Attar
is back to "grassroots" in
building a team. The core con-
sists of senior goaltender
Steve Shoemake, defenseman
Doug Cloutier and midfielder
Pascal LaMarr plus for-
ward/midfielder Chris
Adams.
"It's a fairly decent nucleus
but he'll need more than
that," says Carinci, who said
Attar was his first choice in a
field of five candidates.
Carinci cited Attar's exten-
sive soccer experience and
knowledge and his success
with the Junior Maccabi
team (champions at
Cleveland two years ago,
fourth place at Chicago last
year and second place at Pitt-
sburgh this year, though At-
tar had to resign before the
trip to take the Bluejays' post.
But the key, says Carinci, is
that Attar teaches disciplin-
ed soccer "yet knows kids and
wants them to have fun. That
