Our Athlete of the Week this week is Jacob Sobel. Jacob says his favorite high school memory while playing soccer was winning region his junior year. He has been playing soccer since he was three years old and plans to go to college and try to be a walk on for the soccer team. When asked why he thinks he was picked, Jacob said, “If I am being honest, I don’t know; however, I am extremely flattered to be chosen. If I had to guess, it would be because of how hard I was working and the effort I put forth.” Head Coach Erik Fridborg says, “After sitting his sophomore and junior years out with injuries, Jacob has started his senior year with four goals in two games.” Sobel’s advice to younger players would be to “have a good mindset because if you’re scared, you won’t get any better.” Congrats to Jacob on being recognized for your character and talent!
