END OF SEASON AWARDS
Jared received the "Top Team Player Award" from the Indiana Soccer Coaches Association and recognition as Ben Davis' "Defensive Player of the Year" at the school's soccer awards event this evening. Pictured here with BD Head Coach Jim Copsey, Jared has signed a letter of intent to play collegiate soccer at Olivet Nazarene University. He scrimmaged with ONU on Friday...and he looked awesome. Coach Copsey noted to all at the awards dinner that Jared had been slighted in the press when he was not picked for all-district or all-area teams (he received honorable mention for these). Copsey pointed out that Jared's one-on-one defense shut down the top scorers in the area and state. Congratulations, Jared!
MOLLY, TOO. Molly received her first varsity letter for soccer at the same awards dinner. A freshman, Molly started every game for the Lady Giants in a season that saw the team win their sectional and regional championships and advance to semi-state. Like Jared, Molly is a tenacious defender. She is part of class of freshmen who contributed significantly to BD's success; four freshmen started and seven played in most BD games. They have a lot to look forward to in coming years. Congratulations, Molly!
