Lloyd Longeway is well known as the boys basketball coach at Sonora High.

But this week he's turning to another sport he loves: soccer. He played soccer for 19 years including at Columbia College and Stanislaus State.

He's hosting soccer camp for kids, beginning with 7-year-olds and up to high school age.

He hopes to help athletes improve soccer skills and overall game strategy.

Longeway holds a CIF high school coaching certification and a bachelor's degree in physical education. The camp ends Thursday.
