Sam Stockton of Trinity High School was named the 2013-14 Gatorade Kentucky Boys’ Soccer Player of the Year.
A 5-foot-5, 145-pound junior midfielder, Stockton scored 16 goals and passed for 15 assists this past season, leading the Shamrocks (21-3-1) to the state championship game.
Stockton is the sixth Gatorade Kentucky Boys Soccer Player of the Year to be chosen from Trinity High School.
The award recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field.
Stockton has maintained an A average in the classroom and has volunteered locally with the Kosair Children’s Hospital Foundation and as a member of the Trinity Ambassador program.
“The best kid was Sam Stockton,” said Rob Zoeller, head coach at Ballard High. “He is a very good soccer player and was a key piece for Trinity. I love watching him play.”
Stockton will begin his senior year of high school this fall.
