Central MIssouri Allstars 2010 Jon Strotman Award- Congrats to Hickman's Matt Baker



The Third Annual Central Missouri All Star Game achieved several milestones on Thursday night. Over 60 participants from 14 different schools participated in the event on last night, a new record. Over $1,000 was raised for the American Cancer Society, while honoring the achievements of area high school senior soccer players, almost doubling the dollar amounts raised last year.

Although it was a hot night at Southern Boone County High School, the crowd and players were in a cheerful mood as many of central Missouri's finest high school players ended their soccer careers. Less than half of the players on the field will be playing soccer in college, while others will attend college, some will serve our country in the armed forces or will enter the work force.

In the men's game, scoring was the theme of the evening with the West team tallying three and the East team netting three as well. In the women's game, while the match was spirited and both teams having great efforts, the west won 3-0.

Awards were handed out for players of the game for both East and West teams. For the women's east team- Kinsey Shouse of Jefferson City and the women's west award went to Chelsi Libby of Camdenton. In the men's game Rhys McCracken won the men's west player of the game and on the east team Alec Nagel of Jefferson City won.

The Jon Strodtman award, given for "hustle, determination, and love of the game" were awarded by the coaches to Madi Goodman from Christian Fellowship, who will be playing collegiality at Calvin College, and Matthew Baker of Columbia Hickman, who will be attending Drury University and playing for the Panthers.

Thanks to all who helped. Special thanks to Kilgore's Medical Pharmacy, Soccer Pro, Southern Boone County High School (Chris Miller, Darlene Moore, and crew), Hoss' Market, Stephanie West at Peak Performance, Honey Baked Hams, Central Missouri Referees Association (Sean Hollrah, Sam Orr, Andy McKee, and Ken Seyer), and to all the high school coaches of mid-Missouri (last night's coaches Chuck Register of Helias, Chris Miller of SoBoCo, George Plakorus of Fulton, and Brad Ellebracht of Mexico).
