The 2017 Soccer Rocks enter the season with a number of challenges and opportunities. Replacing nine of eleven starters is usually a case for rebuilding, however, we view it more as a task of reloading. While this year’s team will begin with inexperience at the varsity level, there is a nucleus of young, talented players, along with a core group of seniors.
The Rocks will be led by a poised and mature senior in Goalkeeper, Ryan Troutman, who gained valuable minutes last season in the net. Helping him anchor the defense will be returning starting defender, senior, Andrew Warren. Ryan and Andrew will look to draw support from a number of candidates that are hoping to earn varsity playing time. Junior, Nate Barry, is one of those candidates who should contribute sooner rather than later.
The scoring load will fall to players such as our returning leading goal scorer, junior, Brandon McManus, along with a number of players who have strong attacking ability, including sophomores, Jack Fischer, Jeremy Mason, and Simon Fewell, as well as a host of others such as seniors Xander Shelby and juniors, Jack Malcolm and Grant “Pablo” Brown.
Other Shamrocks expected to contribute valuable minutes are Ben Bowers, Caden Sekelsky, Logan Segeleon, Trent Brown and Liam Kennedy.
The Soccer Rocks once again will play one of the toughest schedules in the state, to include strong programs such as Covington Catholic, Greenwood, Lexington Catholic, Male, Highlands and St. Xavier. Additionally, the team will host the Trinity Soccer Invitational, the weekend of September 22-23, with top Catholic High Schools participating to include Brebeuf Jesuit (Indianapolis), LaSalle (Cincinnati), Moeller (Cincinnati) and St. Francis DeSales (Columbus).
As always, the goal of the program will be to win the region tournament, advance to the KHSAA tournament in Lexington and play for a state championship on November 4.
