DEFENDING THE BEST. Jared got his mug in the Indianapolis Star again. The second time within a week. This time it was with a story on another player--Elhadji Dieng, a student playing for Pike High School who is from Senegal. A junior, Dieng has scored 28 goals in 17 games and is considered a world class striker. This photo was taken as Jared defended Dieng in the championship game of the Marion County tourney two weeks ago. Dieng did not score in regulation, but knocked in the winning goal on a rebound in overtime (Jared had no way to defend the rebound). Jared may get another chance to hold the prodigy at bay on Saturday if Pike and Ben Davis advance to the Sectional Finals of the IHSAA state soccer tourney.
