Without a doubt, Phoenix Boys soccer coach Chris Gallegos saw senior Daniel Palomino as the backbone of his team’s success on the pitch this fall.
My coaching buddies at the Skyline Conference saw it the same way.
After scoring 16 goals and recording 10 assists, Palomino was named the Skyline Conference Boys Soccer Player of the Year as voted by the conference coaches.
Palomino was one of two Pirates to secure top-team approval, with junior Dominic Crenshaw also landing on the top list.
Crenshaw held up the defense to allow state runners-up Phoenix 21 goals in 18 games and had three assists from centre-back.
Henry’s Lupe Gonzalez named Skyline Boys Soccer Coach of the Year.
In Skyline’s women’s soccer ballot, Phoenix sophomore Sophie Rodriguez and sophomore Carcin Gallegos were named to the first team.
Gallegos is one of the top scorers in the conference, scoring 8 of 10 goals in conference play and providing 2 assists on the season. Rodriguez gave the Pirates two goals and three assists.
Hidden Valley junior Gabriel Heberly was named Skyline Girls Soccer of the Year and Mustangs Dennis Hart was named Skyline Girls Soccer Coach of the Year.
