New Tampa, FL - "It was hard to believe at first," said Roland Moldonado, a soccer coach for the Fusion Futbol Club of Tampa Bay.

For the past seven months, Moldonado coached 13 year-old Beau Schenecker on the competitive Fusion team based out of New Tampa.

"He had a good attitude with the team and with me," said Moldonado.

Beau's mother told police it was his bad attitude that drove her to kill him.  Police found Beau shot to death in the family's SUV in the garage.  Upstairs, they also found his sister Calyx, 16, shot to death in her bedroom.

On Monday night, Beau's teammates come to the makeshift memorial in front of the gated community where the Scheneckers live.   

Soccer practice was cancelled on Monday as grief counselors helped players and coaches alike deal with the death of a teammate.

"We have to play for him, the game that he loved."

The coach says Beau was very motivated and talented player.  He never missed a practice until last Thursday.

That was the night when polcie believe Beau's mother killed him.
