Boys Soccer

Kenston Boys Soccer – Looking Back at 2017

I interviewed Kenston senior, Alex Kreuzer, about last season, his opinions, and his plans. Alex is a 3 year varsity athlete, who played midfield and forward for the Kenston Men’s Varsity Soccer Team.

Q- How do you feel about last year’s 7-7-2 season?

A- “I definitely feel like we could’ve done better, and been more organized…(we could’ve) played as a unit and been focused on the main goal.”

Q- What do you think should be done differently next year?

A- “The unit of the team needs to come together, become like a family, and work harder.”

Q- Do you plan on continuing your soccer career in college?

A- “Yeah, I’m attending CSU (Cleveland State University) and playing as a walk-on.”

Q- What was your favorite memory from the last 4 years? last season?

A- “That’s a tough one… I’d have to say winning the WRC (Western Reserve Conference) was the greatest feeling, that was sophomore year… My best memory from last season was playing in a perfect game, the weather was perfect, we were all playing in unison, and I felt like we were professionals… I had one chip to Timmy (Shindika) and he missed and hit the post, but that pass to set him up made me feel in rhythm, like a pro. Also, the crazy header from Andy Dicker when he jumped over all those people.”

Q- Who will step-up next season to fill the senior’s spots?

A- “Definitely Aidan Zak, if he keeps up that work, Donny Maynard, Jack Roman, Andrew Watts, Ben Kapcio will have to step-up big, and David Cooper and others, if they actually run.”
