The Men's varsity soccer team is excited about the upcoming 2019 season, despite the loss of 8 seniors, 7 whom started, and end of the year season record of 7-9-2 with a much stronger schedule from previous years. The Huskies have 4 starters (2 seniors and 2 juniors) returning. Although some key starters have graduated, many of the younger starters are returning for their season and will be in a great position to lead the team. The team attended a summer camp at PFW where head coach Derrick Dean was extremely pleased with the team's effort and performance. First year player Freshman Jackson McCullough will be the starting goalkeeper this season with another freshman Marcus Shaffer nipping at his heals for the position. They will have big shoes to fill after a three-year starter Caleb Grabarz has graduated. Other possible goalie back-ups this season include freshman Owen Martin and freshman Sam Mayo. Returning senior starter Issiac Hickok who will be playing a stopper defender role with senior letterman Mitchell Walbolt holding down the sweeper position, as he fills the role from graduating Cpt. Jackson Stuart. Returning lettermen junior Will Hilton and returning starter senior Luke Vanderwall will be playing outside defense positions. Returning starter junior Donovan Trew will be sharing his time between offense and defense for the Huskies. Senior Tyler Andis, letterman junior Tyler Grabarz and Junior Wyatt Hardebeck will also provide key minutes in the backfield. Returning junior starter Caleb Stuart will be sharing the center midfield role with letterman sophomore Lance Jones for graduated 4-year letterman Jacob Luckey. Senior Max Stallsmith will be providing some key minutes also at center mid and forward. Sophomore letterman Ben Pavy and letterman sophomore Hunter Toll will be playing outside mid with sophomore Braden Kinder. They will be replacing graduated captain and 4-year letterman Zach Clark. Junior Nate Jozsa and freshman Caleb Haymaker will be providing minutes off the bench at the wing positions as well. Returning letterman junior Ethan Aspy will be playing striker with, new to the team, senior Gerson Martinez and Junior Donovan Trew, when not playing defense, will run the third striker position in order to lead the Huskies attacks. Junior Brian Zachary will be seeing several minutes at the forward position as well. They will be replacing two 4-year letterman Drew Tomaszeski and Captain Josh Thorpe as they graduated. With the team being much younger this season they will be looking for guys to step up and be leaders. Working hard this summer, the Huskies have set high goals for themselves this season. Along with wanting to make a huge run in the Hoosier Conference, the team has high hopes for winning yet another Sectional Title for the Boys' Soccer program in our newer sectional because of the formation of the soccer three class system just a few years ago. "After a season of great improvement and tremendous strides last year this season will have several strong players serving in different roles, we will be working on several aspects of the game this summer at various team events like team conditionings, team New Castle tournament scrimmage, summer friendlies, and PFW team soccer camp." says Dean.

"Last season was a great year for all underclassmen because of the leadership of the seniors. This year the younger guys are now older guys and are stepping up, filling some shoes and taking on new roles and positions. I know they are ready for the challenge. We have several guys that can play and have been stepping up since the end of last season. Freshman Jackson McCullough has been phenomenal in the goalie position during the off season. Jackson has worked extremely hard this year and continues to improve each day, with a very technical Junior Marcus Shaffer and freshman Owen Martin clipping at his heels for the goalie position. Captains this season are 1st year captain Senior Mitchell Walbolt, 1st year captain Senior Luke Vanderwall and 1st year captain Senior Issiac Hickok, there have been so many guys working hard and motivating one another. This is a team that will be looking for and to their leaders. This is a much younger team than we have had in several years, which will make it challenging for some, but it is a great thing to hear and see guys working to improve each other. This quality in several of these players made it hard for them to choose their captains. With several new guys to the varsity level this season we are looking for them to step up and fill some roles this season as they have started to show over the summer at PFW and summer friendlies. Not to be forgotten are all of the other guys that have been working hard during conditioning and training in order to try and win starting spots. Keep up the hard work." - Coach Dean
