Football: Landon Pasley – The football program would like to nominate Landon Pasley for athlete of the month. Over the last month, Landon has been a force in all three phases of football (offense, defense and kicking game). In our last four games Landon has scored 2 touchdowns on offense and recovered an onside kick. Defensively he has recorded 19 tackles (15 solo tackles), 6 tackles for loss, 1 forced fumble, and 4 sacks.
Soccer: Noah Cameron – During the month of September Noah Cameron has been our most consistent player. Noah has accumulated 47 saves during that time and only conceded 12 goals. The suburban red conference has 5 very consistent and competitive soccer teams. Opposing coaches know they are not going to score a lot of goals against our team because of our defense and because of Noah. Noah is a captain and a natural leader for the Central Soccer program. He performs at high level on the field and leads his team off the field as well. Noah is the back bone of our defense. There are plenty of times Noah helps to initiate some offense with is ability to punt the ball three quarters of the field to our forwards. We look forward to the rest of the season as Noah will only get better.

It came down to Kim’s match to determine if we went on or not. Kim had lost the first set 2-6 and won the second set 6-4. Her and opponent split sets to force the match to a third set tie breaker. Kim left it all on the court and played her heart out and ended up winning the breaker 11-9. The last month of season Kim played tennis like there was no tomorrow.
