I wanted to quickly recognize senior midfielder Deven Wightman and junior goalkeeper Eric Bunn being the current stats leaders on the Washington Post’s High School sports section for fall soccer. Deven is currently the assists leader with 11, whereas Eric is the saves leader with 93. With that, they are our #NeverQuitPOTWs for Week 8.
Our Senior Night is this Thursday, October 17th against Thomas Stone. We will recognize our seniors in-between Boys and Girls games. I would like every player in the program to be present for the game as well as be a part of the honor guard for the recognition ceremony. Unlike past years, we will have our banquet on the following Tuesday, October 22 in the school’s Cafeteria at 5 PM. Everyone is invited.
- SENIORS – Please fill out the survey that I sent you/your parents. This is what we are using to recognize you on Thursday.
COLUMBUS DAY HOMEWORK
Varsity players should watch the La Plata scout film on HUDL. Everyone should get a workout in. Get some touches on the ball. Get with a teammate and work on passing and shooting. Ultimately, get off the couch and make sure that you are ready to take on La Plata on Tuesday evening. They will be ready for you.
At this point, I have only seen grades for 20 of the 39 players in the program. Please send me a screenshot of your son’s StudentVue account which shows all their grades. The coaching staff wants to help these boys on and off the field be the best that they can be. A large part of that is by knowing who needs homework help.
