Salute to Our 2020 Senior Boys' Soccer Players
(5/27/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)
Today we salute the Boys' Soccer team seniors. Coach Hennigan and the players provided the following information.
Bryan Casanas was a 4-year letterman and two year starter. As a junior, he earned his way into the starting lineup with grit and determination. He also was named one of our most improved players. Bryan understood what it meant to earn playing time. His drive and commitment in practice and a mentality of never giving up made him a valued member of the team. Bryan will attend Greenville Technical College. His favorite memory is "becoming a starter during my junior year."
Josh Lipscomb was a 4-year starter and letterman and a captain for two years. As a junior goalkeeper, Josh was selected by region coaches as an at-large all-region goalkeeper. In addition to his leadership on the field, Josh guided our younger players and taught himself Spanish to help keep everyone informed. Josh plans to major in Spanish and Philosophy at Wofford College. His favorite memory is "winning with a shutout against Berea on Senior Night Junior Year."
Garet Morgan is a two-time most improved player who lettered all four years. He is a player who studies the game and worked exceptionally hard to get himself fit to play nearly any position on the field. He spent time at midfield and on defense earning a starting role his senior year. His first touch and passing ability, especially long passes, made him an asset. Garet plans to run cross country at Spartanburg Methodist College and major in Business. His favorite memory is "the bus rides to a game and being more than just a team but a family."
