These are the units within the team. They have their own responsibilities within the team context. The success of many teams depends upon these specific units. A single unit can carry a team to Sumner – or beyond.
Washington Soccer Central will now honor the best of the best at each position with the 4th Annual WSC Awards.
Top Defensive Units
1. GRACE ACADEMY – Backed by Isaiah VanDam in goal, the Eagles were one of the top defenses in the state last year. VanDam had a monster season in goal. Joe Zak will also return to anchor the defense.
2. WAITSBURG/PRESCOTT – The Tigers finished fourth last season with many key defenders returning for 2014. Jose Paniagua and Christian Caro will be experienced options for the defense.
3. MOUNT VERNON CHRISTIAN – The Hurricanes return two defensive starters and goalkeeper Riley Hood from a unit that conceded only 16 goals in 21 games.
4. NORTHWEST CHRISTIAN – Jacob Bean may quietly be the best defender in the state for the 2B/1B level and he will lead the Crusaders back line that will stout in Eastern Washington.
5. PROVIDENCE CLASSICAL CHRISTIAN – Wesley Su and Aidan Walsh will lead an experienced back line that should only improve as the year progresses.
6. Saint George’s School
7. Riverside Christian
8. Shoreline Christian
9. Tacoma Baptist
