11 of 15 Play for the VLSC
The Virginia Legacy is proud to announce that of the 15 players selected for the boys soccer Daily Press All-Star Team, eleven play for the VLSC. Emery Trott, who will play at Haverford College (PA) this Fall, was selected as the Daily Press boys soccer Player of the Year. Congratulations to all these players on their amazing high school seasons!
Emery Trott | Lafayette | senior. 6’2 defender who dominated in the air. Also tallied 12 goals and 10 assists on route to a Regional title. Voted as the Daily Press boys soccer Player of the Year.
Reilly Maw | Tabb | senior. Strong, fast and as talented as any attacker in the state, Maw was named Bay Rivers Player of the Year after scoring 28 goals in the regular season.
Aaron Kaye | Grafton | junior. The hard-working forward was often double-teamed but still managed 10 goals and eight assists in garnering all-district and all-region honors.
Calvin Mitchell | Lafayette | senior. A fine all-around player whose lethal free kick was perhaps the Rams’ best weapon, the first-team all-state pick registered 16 assists for the regional champs.
Jeff Wolons | Jamestown | sophomore. The small but quick midfielder was the key to the regional semifinalist Eagles’ attack with 10 goals and 12 assists, earning second-team all-state honors.
Matt Cullom | Jamestown | junior. The Group AA all-state honorable-mention pick was the Eagles’ scoring leader with 13 goals.
Mike Connell | Jamestown | senior. On a Jamestown team that scored fewer goals than in recent years, Connell’s play made defense a team strength for the regional semifinalists.
Reeves Trott | Lafayette | freshman. A rising star, Trott added offensive punch with eight goals and five assists to help the Rams win their first district title in eight years.
Sammy Blosser | Menchville | senior. Was a standout on defense for the district regular-season and tournament champs, and contributed five goals and eight assists en route to All-Eastern Region honors.
Alex Emerson | Lafayette | senior. The goalie posted 15 shutouts in 20 games, giving up only eight goals while making a huge save (one of 79) in the penalty-shootout win over Jamestown that clinched the state berth.
