My favorite memory from this season is beating Southwest Christian in double overtime. All the guys fought hard to the very last whistle and it paid off in the end. I'm most excited just to bond with next year's team. Since my freshman year, I've always seen my teammates as brothers, and I know that will still be true next season.
This year the Legacy boys’ soccer season continued the tradition of winning. Not only did they show their talent on the pitch but displayed leadership on and off the field. With a season record of 12-7-3, and the third straight year to have victories in the postseason, they continued the tradition of high quality and strong competition.
Coach Armstrong stated, “I could not have hoped for a better group of young men to coach. All season long I heard compliments from other coaches and officials as to how my boys competed with style and sportsmanship. As a coach, you always ask your players to give you their best, to honor God in the way they play, and to have fun. These young men checked all the boxes and I am proud of each and every one of them.”
The season provided some highs and lows as a few matches slipped through our fingers in the last minutes of a match. Yet, we snatched a few victories from our opponents in the final seconds as well. One such match was against Fort Worth Christian, where after trailing for most of the game, we scored the equalizer with no time left on the clock, and then went on to win the match in overtime. Proving our young men had tenacity and heart to play to the end.
My favorite memory of the season was when we scored at the very last second against Fort Worth Christian. I am most excited about our Tyler tournament and hanging out with the team next year.
All of the starting varsity players earned District recognition. Those recognized as Third Team All-District were; Senior Houghston Lee (Defense), Sophomores Benji Brewer (Defense), Rohnan Mech and Sam Harkins (Midfield), Freshman Gavin Pickerill (Forward). Second Team All-District honors were; Senior Michael Crock (Midfield), Junior Josiah Gill (Forward), Max Sanderlin (Defense), Sophomore Jonathan Darrell (Goalie), and Freshman Jake Long (Midfield). First Team All-District Honors went to Seniors David May (Defense) and Jordan Orlando (Forward), and Sophomore Trenton Balcombe (Midfield). In addition, Senior Captain David May earned the Districts Most Valuable Defender of the Year.
While the team will be graduating four senior starters, the remaining players are solid, seasoned, and strong. Confident that the tradition of winning will continue, the players are looking forward to next season and eager to represent Legacy Christian once again on the pitch.
My favorite memory is getting the game-winning goal against Southwest with 40 seconds left. I'm most excited about getting another shot at winning state next year. It was great playing on Varsity as a Freshman. All my teammates were really welcoming, and I had great time playing with this year's seniors.
