Jayden Mullens from the league-leading junior boys soccer team is this week’s Athlete of the Week for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is his leadership on the field.
In his second year with the junior program, this Grade 10 student from Oakland, Maine has grown in confidence and has taken charge of the back line; he is always in constant communication with his fellow defenders, directing the defence and helping his teammates with their positioning. In terms of effectiveness on the field, Jayden’s poise, fitness, soccer IQ and strength on the ball make him a truly elite defender. He never comes off the field, he always makes the right play, and he almost never loses a 50/50 ball. Congratulations, Jayden, for a fantastic start to the season, and for your well-deserved Athlete Of The Week award!
