DOUGLAS — The Cochise College soccer team is looking toward the 2014 fall season as its incoming freshman class forms this offseason.

“We are so excited for the upcoming season,” said outgoing Cochise head coach Andrea Daniels. “We have recruited top level talent from Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Nevada. We wish the season could start tomorrow. With the talent that we have returning matched with the high level of incoming players coming in, it’s a pure recipe for success.
