The Bremen High School boys' soccer team notched its third consecutive double-digit win season under head coach Jason Fields in 2017, narrowly missing out on a berth in the Class AAA postseason.
The efforts didn't go unnoticed, however, as two of the Blue Devil players will be competing this weekend as all-stars.
Junior midfielder Noah Stanford and senior midfielder Matthew Reese were both selected to participate in Saturday's 2 p.m. Georgia High School All-Star Game hosted by DiVarsity.com at Sprayberry High School in Marietta where they will play on the Blue Team.
This will be both Blue Devils' first time playing in such an event, an invite that left the junior Stanford stunned when he found out that he had been tabbed for the contest.
"I was shocked to find out I was selected, but now I'm definitely excited for the opportunity," Stanford said. "It's something that I personally wasn't expecting, but now that's it settled in, it definitely is an honor to go up there and represent my team and my teammates."
Used to several accolades like this across different sports throughout his time at Bremen, the outgoing senior Reese is looking forward to getting out on the field in Marietta come Saturday.
"It'll be a great experience to go out there on Saturday and play with some of the best kids from around the state," Reese said. "We're just going to go out there and have fun."
As one of three seniors on the Bremen roster throughout the 2017 campaign, Saturday will mark the final athletic event Reese will compete in as a Blue Devil before heading off to Reinhardt University for football. He talked about the experience of officially ending his Bremen High athletic tenure in the all-star showcase.
"It'll be an honor to showcase my skills for my school one last time," Reese said. "It's a great way to end the year and end my high school career and I'm looking forward to the experience."
