Logan Soli — Athlete of the Week

28 09 2010

I lobbied hard for Robert Johnson of Carlmont High, but Logan Soli had a terrific game against Mt. Eden in locking up a Capuchino win. It snapped a 10-game losing streak. Below is an excerpt of the story by Nathan Mollat. Photo is by him as well. Congratulations to Soli.

Soli soars for Capuchino
By Nathan Mollat, Daily Journal Staff

It is not unusual for a standout high school football player to impact a game in
a variety of ways from a number of positions — offense, defense and special
teams.

It is another thing altogether, however, for both a player and coaching staff to
figure it out on the fly. Yet that is precisely what is happening at Capuchino
with junior Logan Soli. A wide receiver by trade, both Soli and the Capuchino
coaching staff are finding out Soli can do a lot more than just catch a thrown
ball.

During the Mustangs’ 14-12 win over visiting Mt. Eden-Hawyard Friday, Soli
made six catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. He carried the ball two times
for 7 yards having never played running back before. He gave the Mustangs a
golden scoring chance in the first quarter when he returned a punt for 28 yards
to the Monarchs’ 12 — the first time he’s returned a punt. Then there was his
play at defensive back that resulted in a number of bone-rattling hits on Mt.
Eden receivers. He had not played much free safety in his life, including
practice.

“Because of some injuries, we’ve had to move him around even more, including to one of our wings (running back positions),” Seiden said. “Some kids just have that ‘it’ to where they can pick it up (nuances of the game). Logan has done everything above and beyond (we’ve asked).”

It all added up to one of the best all around performances on the young season as the Mustangs’ snapped a 10-game losing streak.

For his efforts, Soli is this week’s Daily Journal Athlete of the Week.
