For the first time in program history, the Granite Hills High School boys soccer team produced an All-East Sequoia League Most Valuable Player with the selection of sophomore forward, Daniel Ruiz.
“It’s an honor,” GHHS head coach Pedro Gonzalez said. “I have a bunch of players that can be MVP but if you think about it, there’s people watching my players and agreeing that this is one of the best players in the league. It’s a lot for the school and for him.”
Other top honors in ESL went to Corcoran’s Vicente Rojas (Defensive Player of the Year) and Miguel Orozco (Goalkeeper of the Year), Woodlake’s Richard Rodriguez (Offensive POY) and Farmersville’s Michael Jordan (Coach of the Year).
Along with Ruiz, six other Grizzlies and two Cardinals from Lindsay were also selected to the All-ESL first and second teams.
