From the Sideline

“Austin Dickinson is the boys soccer team captain. He has worked his tail off from freshman year and now will be one of our captains for the 2019 season. Austin is also a part of JROTC and is a great person. He is one of the hardest workers I have ever coached. He never gives up and is a positive influence to the entire game of soccer. His teammates love him, respect and look for his leadership on the field. He was a very shy kid when he started, always had high effort, not necessarily the most athletic on the field. He continued to work on his craft and because of his work ethic he will be the starting CB for Kentwood this season.”
