I think you've got the right idea doing no endurance stuff. He'll have that covered by going to practice and doing games.

All are time consuming and leave you sore.

I would expect a lot of single leg work to be coming in the speed/agilty drills and the skill work.
I think the single leg stuff should be kept to a minimum out of the warmup. If you've got time and energy out the wazoo, go nuts with single-leg stuff, but given that he is in-season all year, I'd rather spend valuable time and energy on the real money-makers - squats, deadlifts, cleans, etc, and leave the single leg stuff for the warmup/agility drills. And as above with endurance, he'll be doing a rep of single leg work every time he kicks the ball at practice - why do more in the weight room?
