Foxes soccer season takes off

They Foxes are back! The Foxes boys’ varsity team has the proven potential to shake up the Battlefield District this season. They have all the essential ingredients to form a winning season. From a tough group of underclassmen with junior varsity championship experience (two years) to an innate hunger to surpass last season’s 6-7-2 (overall), 5-7-2 (Battlefield District), the Foxes are confident that they can break into the perennial upper echelon district group (Courtland, Chancellor, Culpeper, James Monroe).

The Foxes are on the tip of iceberg of becoming a perennial postseason team, as they barely missed the playoffs by one game last year. In short, the Foxes have the right stuff on paper, now it’s time for them to prove to the rest of the district that are for real. “This season we are hoping to build upon the improvements we showed over a course of last season, and really over the past few seasons,” head coach

Jeff Butler said.

Peering into the Foxes roster the following returning players include: Brandon Desque (senior, mid-fielder), Jacob Green (senior, forward, mid-fielder, defender), Hunter Josemans (senior, mid-fielder), Alex Kendrick (senior, forward, defender), Jabari Terrell (senior, defender), David Wagner (senior, goalie), Raymond Webb (senior, defender), Will Zimmerman (senior, forward, mid-fielder), Javan Haas (junior, mid-fielder), Matt Walseman (junior, forward, mid-fielder).

Noteworthy of praise by coaches throughout the district, Walseman, Terrell, and Haas each earned 2011 All-District Honorable Mention awards.

Other players who could impact the Foxes destiny include: Matt Legg (senior, mid-fielder), Harold Rodriquez (senior, defender), Tony Arvizu (junior, defender), Patrick Bewick (junior, defender), John Heilman (junior, mid-fielder, defender), Dakota Horner (junior, mid-fielder), Ian Koepfinger (junior, mid-fielder), Duncan Mollner (junior, mid-fielder, defender), Christian Jones (sophomore, forward), Johannes Gulick (freshman, goalie).

Although the Foxes lost five key members to graduation, their contributions to the program will not be forgotten. Stephen Cocke (five goals, two assists) was a second team All-District team captain whose leadership was crucial to the team’s success. Chris Gummer (seven goals, four assists) earned a spot on the All-District second from his create scoring opportunities, and playing sound defense. Joel Morrissett, Joe Carter, and Nathan Crookshank were highly versatile athletes, who collectively played important roles in the Foxes fortunes.
