All District Freshmen Team; All District Team; High School Freshmen of the year; Defensive MVP; Team MVP
I was awarded Varsity Captain my sophmore year, and took the role very seriously. I made All-District again my Sophmore year, was Team MVP again playing mainly Attacking Center Mid-Fielder. Lead Team in goals scored 11 and assists 7. We were Finalist in one of our Winter Tournaments for Competitive and Champions in another.
Spring Competitive Season so far: I am playing Forward and Mid-fielder and leading the team in goals and in second in assists. We have won 1 Tournament-Beast of the East--so far and our only loss in State League was yesturday 4/27, which I had to sit out of the game due to a hip-flexer injury. I am hoping to be ready Wed for our final State League game so at least we can finish 2nd in League play. We fully expect to dominate come State Tournament.
The last 2 weekends of Tournaments were rather disappointing as we were never beaten but missed both Championship games based on not Humiliating the weak Teams in our Brackett. In Brentwood Classic first 2 games were reduced to 20 minute halfs due to rain, we won first game 3-0 and I had 2 goals, 2nd game we tied 0-0. The 3rd game we tied 1-1 playing 2 40 minute halves.
This past weekend at State Tournament we won first game 3-0 and I had a goal and an assist, and tied the 2nd game 0-0, again shortened games due to rain and we missed Championship because the team we tied beat the other team 5-0.
I am really looking forward to My Senoir year of High School Soccer and the end of Season Tournament as at least in that one it will be settled with no ties, we can win it on the field instead of depending on how the points shake out.
Have had a great week at Tusculom College Soccer Team Camp, on Tuesday in our 6v6 Round Robin Tournament my team went 4-0-1 and finished first, we had 14 goals and my stats were, 10 goals and 4 assists. Wednesday our High School Team beat a team from Kentucky 2-0 and I had 1 Assist, but played several positions, C-forward, C-Mid, Stopper and Sweeper as our High School Coach was trying to get a look at alot of players to see what they could do.
It looks as if my High School Coach has settled on me playing Center Mid, in our first scrimmage game we won 11-1. I had 1 goal and 8 assists. Looking forward to tonites game and thursday nights to get good warm up before the Play Day we have this weekend in Cleveland , TN. We should face some stiffer competition this weekend so hopefully we are clicking by then.
All my stats for this Season include all games played, i.e. pre-season, tournaments, varsity matches and 1 JV match I had to play due to not enough players. Our team is really looking good so far and looking forward to the big match-up in a couple weeks with our heated rivals Halls and then Oak Ridge. I am on a streak right now scoring with at least 1 goal in 7 straight matches, counting the JV match last night 9/15. I have also had at least 1 assist in all but 2 of those 7 matches.
10/22/09---- We have attained our first goal for this season, winning last night in Semi-finals of District Playoffs, guarranteeing us a spot in the Regional Tournament. We have a re-match in the District Championship game Friday 4;30pm against Oak Ridge at Oak Ridge, TN. We are looking forward to this game, and to finally knock them off and obtain at least 1 home game for the Regional Tournament.
We have recently finished with our High School soccer season. I am still the leading goal scorer on our team. I am comfortable playing Forward or Center Midfielder, Defender or Goal Keeper. But mostly Center Midfield. I have been playing soccer since I was 4 years old. I have played on a competitive soccer team since eleven. (note) I am a Senior in High School 2009-2010 school year. We made it all the way to the District finals and placed 2nd.
