South and West Stokes were the only schools in the county to field men’s soccer teams this fall. Both teams struggled in the win column, but had special talents on the field. The Stokes News along with area high school coaches named the 2017 men’s soccer team.

West Stokes Bailey Moran was a Western Piedmont Athletic All-Conference player and was named 2017 conference defensive player of the year. He made all-region in 2016 and 2017.

Offensive threats Caleb Peters and Jacob Doncsescz made the team for West Stokes. Peters was awarded WPAC All-Conference and all-region with seven goals and four assists, while Doncesesca had six goals, seven assists, and performed solid in midfield for the Wildcats this season.

Freshman defensive specialist, Cameron Knox was WPAC All-Conference and helped the Wildcats defense by giving up less than two goals a game to opponents. Other defenders making the cut for all-county from West Stokes were Seth Moore, Dylan Gupton and Connor McBride.

The Wildcats finished the season 5-12-4, beating South Stokes 4-0 and tying the second game at two goals each.

South Stokes placed six talented players on the team with four from the defensive side and two offensive players.

Nimai Browning earned player of the year for the Sauras and was named Northwest 1A All-Conference. He made the all-region team and anchored the Sauras defense.

Caleb Richardson and Alex Booe also received all-conference honors in the Northwest 1A and both were named all-region. Richardson played center back on defense and Booe spent time in the goalie box with nine saves.

Lowell Shotton, who scored four goals this season, was touted offensive player of the year and named honorable mention all-conference in the Northwest.

Hunter Burrow played left back defender for the Sauras and was named honorable mention all-conference and defensive player of the year for his team.

Cole Rothrock made the transition from football to soccer and became a key component for South as a right defender. He scored two goals this season.

South and West lost four seniors each and plan to return teams with leadership and experience.
