Athlete of the Month: Eric Zhang

Senior Eric Zhang attempts to overtake the attacking player without violating the COVID-19 restrictions. Zhang was a starting center back, a position which he has played for only two years. “When I moved to varsity, I moved from a midfielder to a defender,” Zhang said. “It was probably due to a shortage of defenders and an abundance of midfielders. No one wants to play center-back. You simply don't get a lot of recognition and you missout on being able to dribble, shoot, and the other more fun aspects of soccer. So getting into the mindset that I had to do my job and could only do my job was hard at first.”
