Whenever someone asks Eddie Soto to describe his professional soccer career, he remembers his brother's now prophetic line. "He said, 'Any time you go professional, it's just like the entertainment industry--some days you're on the top of the world, and other days you just want to stay in a shell and never come out,' " Soto said. "It's been like that for me."

The 1993 soccer season, through the eyes of Cal State Fullerton forward Eddie Soto: The ball moves slowly upfield, creeping past the midfield stripe, rolling toward his side of the field. A teammate gives it a boot, and it slowly rolls his way. It takes forever to get to him. In fact, he could probably grab a sandwich and some chips by the time the ball arrives. After playing in Spain last summer, he knew things would be different when NCAA competition resumed.

A year ago, the best men's soccer player at Chapman University wasn't even on the team. Chapman was supposed to be an academic pit stop for Eddie Soto, a first-year player with Division I talent. The idea was to transfer to Southern Methodist and a soccer scholarship after his grades improved. But Soto wasn't able to meet SMU's requirements and decided to play for Chapman this year rather than sit out another season. That decision made Chapman Coach Gregg Murphy extremely happy.
