Here are six high school soccer players you can see from the Oklahoma City area this spring:
Marco Romero, Sr., southeast: Southeast’s run to the national title two years ago was in large part thanks to Romero, who was dynamic and an All-American. He’s back, better, and trying to lead the Spartans to another title.
Mario Ruiz, Sr., US Grant: Ruiz is a tough midfielder and one reason US Grant can make a deep playoff run. In three games this year, the captain has three goals and five assists.
Isaias Silva, Sr., Mustang: The Broncos’ unbeaten start is in large part thanks to Silva, The Oklahoman’s 2019 All-City Player of the Year. He has 12 goals and three hat tricks in five games.
Illeana Ferguson, Sr., Deer Creek: The Tulsa signer is the player who powers the antlers. Ferguson has superior ball control and can get out of tight situations, but also has the awareness of putting teammates in attacking areas.
Samantha Guzman, Sr., McGuinness: Guzman is a talented midfielder and electric goalscorer. The signatory to Oral Roberts scored 29 goals in his sophomore year and was called up to the first team for The Oklahoman’s All-City. He returns looking for more.
Jordan Hahn, Fr., Piedmont: It’s not often that newbies can make a difference right away, but that’s exactly what Hahn did. She has 10 goals and four assists to start the year which is a huge advantage while a few seniors are off the line.
