Boys Varsity Soccer

Coach Smith writes, “He has been super dependable, works hard, is coachable, plays with intensity and poise. He does his job and doesn’t talk to anyone on the pitch. He just plays hard and focuses on the job at hand. I wish we had a couple more like him.” Sam has been working on his confidence and voice this fall. He is slowly turning into a quiet leader who stands up for what he believes in. He is open to feedback and works hard to accomplish his goals. This week, Sam was a big piece of a varsity boys’ soccer defense that gave up only one goal in two playoff level games. He has developed into a shutdown defender and that was evident this week in his hard work against two All-League level attackers.
