Coach’s Pick- Boys Varsity Soccer


Luke Drew, Associate Producer


In place of our previous series “players spotlight”, we’re introducing “Coach’s Pick”. That is where a coach from a sports team picks a player who they think has the most positive impact on the team. The chosen player is not always the best on the team, but the one with the most dedication, positive attitude, and best work ethic. The coach’s pick for this week is on the Boys Varsity Soccer team. The boys finished their season 10-6-1 getting knocked out of sectionals. Despite the loss, the boys showed tremendous effort and had a great season overall. Mr. Turton chose Austin Avino for his coach’s pick. Coach Turton describes Austin as a positive leader who not only leads with communication, but by example. He said Austin’s work ethic and leadership on and off the field are tremendous. Coach Turton explains how Austin improves the team by his overall energy. In games and at practices Austin is always very enthusiastic and supportive. Austin has been on Varsity soccer for 2 years. Last year when the boys had a strong senior class, Austin did not play that much. Instead of getting frustrated, Austin put it upon himself to get better during the offseason and during travel season. Austin ended his senior year of soccer with 10 goals and 7 assists. Austin leads the team with goals and assists. Furthermore, Austin hopes to play soccer in college. He is looking for schools to play for and what teams will be the best fit for him. Overall, Austin showed great leadership and had a great positive impact on the team.
