The Indianapolis Star has honored Lakewood Park Christian senior Bradey Gerke as its All-USA Indiana boys soccer athlete of the week.
Gerke scored five goals against Fort Wayne Snider on Sept. 15 and another five against Lakeland Christian on Sept. 17 in just 110 minutes on the field combined.
He leads Indiana with 33 goals. As a senior on a young team, he unselfishly leads and creatively facilitates offense while also attacking.
Though last week’s performances were outstanding, it’s even more impressive to note they were something of a microcosm of Gerke’s season to date.
According to MaxPreps.com, a popular website for tracking high school athletic statistics, the senior Panther currently leads the nation both in goals scored, with 33, and points (a metric combining goals and assists), with 75.
