What began at the end of last season with a run from district No.6 seed to the region playoffs has continued at the beginning of this season for Gaither's boys.
And it has continued thanks in large part to the same person that began it in forward Jordan See.
See has scored eight goals in five games for the Cowboys (5-0-0), including a pair in Tuesday night’s 3-1 victory against Plant. According to Gaither coach Eric Sims, See has embraced the role of leading the team.
“Last year he kind of put the team on his shoulders,” Sims said. “He was really the biggest scoring threat we had. Everything seemed to go through him, and I think he liked that role. He likes for everything to come through him, so I think he’s in a role where he wants to be the guy.”
With his ability in front of goal, Sims is expecting See to start getting extra attention from opponents. As a result, he is hoping to see others, like Zach Wheeler and Charlie Delmar, to step up and provide support.
“Zach Wheeler, he plays up front and in the center midfield, he’s definitely someone who is a scoring threat,” Sims said. “Charlie Delmar, we started him at center back, but we’ve moved him into the center of midfield, and he’s scored a couple of goals; he’s a very good player.”
