He gets a lot of attention from the opposing defense on the wing.
Moved from Defense to Forward in the sophomore year Jack Cunha is someone to see for Fairhaven this season. Senior Cameron Souza is back on the net for the Blue Devils, who are also returning senior defenders Jake Ozcan.
GNB Voc-Tech is one of the most experienced teams in the region with the return of senior strikers Landon Amaral and Dominek Borden as well as senior Christian Liboriowho moved from midfield to defense. Junior Cameron aguiar has great skills and is strong with his vision as an attacking midfielder on and off the ball.
The coach of the old colony, Sergio Pedrosa, welcomes a pair of second midfielders in Christian Johnson and Ryan Scott.
After missing all of last season with injuries, hopes are high for the Old Rochester senior captain Charlie Hartley-Matteson and junior captain George Barry.
Though there is a lack of totals in Wareham, there are two strong seniors represented in the Vikings Joey Pearle and Wylde LaTulippe. Pearle, a five year old varsity player, plays defense and midfield while LaTulippe is in midfield.
