PH's Wolverton top Boys Soccer athlete

(Continued)

The ball remained in play and found its way back to him. Wolverton skillfully rocketed the ball toward the left post and past the Mt. Vernon goalkeeper.

Goal!

The Arabians had a 4-3 lead they kept and earned the victory.

“That was one of the most incredible feelings I have ever had in my life,” he said. “We had the biggest fan turnout I had ever seen since I was a freshman and they stormed the field. It meant a lot to the team.”

With Wolverton’s skills improving each year, Davy decided to move him from the left wing position to the center to allow him more space to use those improved ball skills.

“It gave him the whole 360 degrees — the ability to see the whole field,” Davy said. “He grew into that and became a game changer. If we were down, we looked to Brian to get us the special goal.”

With the soccer season complete, Wolverton played his last match as an Arabian. His playing ability and his leadership on and off the field will be missed, but he hopes the underclassmen will remember him for not only his game performance, but how he prepared for the game he loves.

“Hard work pays off,” Wolverton said. “If you want to accomplish something, you have to earn it — work to get it.”

The next athlete will be announced in Tuesday's edition. HONOR ROLL - Shin Kim, Liberty Christian; Taylor Binkerd, Liberty Christian; Jaren Baker, Liberty Christian; Matt Brown, Pendleton Hts.; Mac Miller, Pendleton Hts.; Tyler Collier, Pendl;eton Hts.

The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
