As the varsity boys soccer goalkeeper, Patricio Gutierrez has been simply outstanding.
Early in the season, the Mexico City native helped keep his team in games against a superior BCS squad, and recently his sterling performances have led to victories against Massey-Vanier, Richmond and Alexander Galt, featuring fingertip saves, point-blank saves, not one but TWO saved penalty shots (100% record on penalties saved!), and even a converted penalty shot of his own. Cool as a cucumber and immune to pressure, it is easy to forget that this confident young man is only in Grade 9. Congratulations, Patricio, for a fantastic season thus far, and for your well-deserved Athlete Of The Week award!
