**Athlete Interviews are posted every Thursday for recruiting advice, what to look for, and more.  

The Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) men’s soccer team is having the best season it’s seen in years. They are currently ranked 1st in the Cascade Collegiate Conference, and have the best defense in the nation for NAIA. With a 10-1 record, the team has high hopes for the remainder of the season. This last weekend, the Oregon Tech men’s team beat the reigning conference champs: Corban University.

LRT Sports met with three members of the team to discuss their climb to the top, what it’s like to be a team leader, their team goals, and how they’ve encountered and dealt with burnout along the way.
