In 2007, Coach Goranson and Coach Lazaro started an under-11 girls’ soccer team in Bourbonnais. During the team’s 4 years together, the girls consistently exceeded expectations, both on and off the field. Today, the first of those young ladies, from what was last known as Moxie United, are getting ready to move on to college; and some will be attending on athletic scholarships.
In the years following Moxie United, Coach Goranson went on to coach varsity girls’ soccer at the High School level for 4 seasons. In his time at Bishop Mac, the team had its most successful run in school history. Coach Lazaro continued to share his passion for the game through private and group training, boasting several dedicated students, and as a referee.
In the spring of 2016, due to the encouragement of a variety of soccer friends and family, Coach Goranson and Coach Lazaro decided the time was right to establish a new U11 girls’ soccer team in the area. In respect to the families of Moxie United, we decided to go with a new name…Legion FC.

(FORMERLY MOXIE UNITED), EST. 2007
Club Formerly known as "Moxie United"
Moxie gave me the chance to meet girls from other towns and make lifelong friendships. Moxie is one of the main reasons I am where I am today; about to play college soccer. Moxie was my home away from home. This club taught me everything from technical skills to being a leader.
Moxie was more than a soccer team...this team/family molded them into inspiring individuals and showed them how to grow to be driven, supportive, kind, understanding and compassionate team players! The coaches not only coached them but made them see there are no obstacles except yourself in growth of a team! Amazing experience! Thank you!
Moxie was one of the best experiences of my life. It made me realize what I love to do and where I want to go in life. The family that we had was amazing and I will never forget them.
Moxie meant everything to me. The bond I had with my teammates and coaches meant everything to me. It was like a second family.
