Q: As a Breck lifer, does it amaze you that your time there is almost over?
A: It seems like just a couple of years ago that I was in first grade and I had a senior buddy. Now I am the senior buddy.
Q: The soccer team won its first nine games this year and is 14-2. Was that expected?
A: We’re not surprised that we’ve played well, because we’ve got a ton of talent back from last year and we really get along well together. I think the biggest surprise was winning all those games in a row. We got ranked No. 1 [in Class 1A], which was kind of a shock.
Q: Talk about the first loss.
A: It was to Blake and it was our homecoming. That was one of the worst experiences I’ve had, but I think it was good to get the undefeated thing over with. They’re our biggest rivals. I hope we the chance to meet them again in the state tournament.
Q: How much fun has it been to be scoring like you have been?
A: This is all kind of new to me. I’ve played center mid for most of my childhood, so this is my first year up top. I think I took to it pretty quickly. I’m enjoying it.
Q: Give me an unsung hero or two on your team.
A: Our centerback, Jack Dickinson, is a captain. Everything goes through him. He’s a huge part of the team. He just tore his ACL two games ago, so that’s a big hit to our team. And another captain, Jake Duxbury, our keeper. He was out with a concussion for two, three weeks, but he just came back. He’s one of the top goalkeepers in the state.
Q: Is soccer in your college plans?
A: I hope to play soccer, but I don’t want to do it at a Division I school. Maybe a Division III program around here somewhere.
