Will Gibson named RevCitySports.com Male Fall Athlete of 2014
JAMES CITY – Williamsburg Christian Academy soccer player Will Gibson was named RevCitySports.com Fall Male Athlete of 2014
The senior defender was sensational for an Eagle squad that lost in the Metro Conference tournament finals and just missed the state tournament.
Gibson backstopped a defense that was one of the toughest to score against in the state. Williamsburg Christian surrendered just eight goals all season and posted 14 shutouts. The senior was opportunistic offensively as well, posting three goals and six assists to earn Metro Conference and Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association Division 2 state honors."
Will had this to say about his recognition - "This was an incredible honor but, as in any team sport it was achieved through the hard work and determination of my teammates at Williamsburg Christian Academy Mens Soccer team; I just got to be the representative. My high school coach,Tim Cristian guided the team to an amazing school record! We worked very hard all season.…giving up just eight goals and posting 14 shutouts. We were one of the toughest defensive teams in the state for VISAA Div.II schools. Coach Cristian taught us that integrity and character plays an important role in being a leader on and off the field ~ which creates a well rounded athlete. An athlete thats “ All In “ which was our team motto. Being part of Virginia Legacy Soccer Club since age nine provided me with invaluable training such as foot skills, agility, rules of the game, technique, and an opportunity to play at a very competitive level. My Legacy coaches~ Brent Trainum, Johnny Kamara, Bobby O’Brien and Carey Aliff provided depth of training ~ allowing me to play where I was needed on both my travel team and my high school team. This honor goes way beyond me…it is a reflection of many”
The Virginia Legacy is very proud of Will and the rest of the Williamsburg Christian Academy Boys Soccer team for their accomplishments. Congratulations for such a successful season!
