From the Sideline:

“I selected Jonathan McKenzie for this honor. Jonathan was selected not because of his stats over the last three years but rather for his leadership on the boys soccer team. This year he has been selected as one of the captains of the soccer team. Jonathan leads with his vision on the field. He is not only vocal, but sees things on the field that other team members and onlookers do not.”

— Barry Smith, soccer coach
