New to Beaver this year, freshman Zachary Herivaux quickly made his mark on the boys’ varsity soccer team. Herivaux scored eight goals with seven assists to help Beaver to an 11-3-3 record. He was recognized for his excellent season with an MVP honor from the Eastern Independent League (EIL).
“Zachary has had a significant impact on our program in a very short time period,” says head coach Steve Schechter. “His success stems not only from his remarkable technical ability and athleticism, but from the way he approaches the game. He is the first person to spend extra time before or after school working on his free kicks and skills. He is also the first person to credit and support his teammates. For a player that is widely regarded as among the best in the country, he carries himself with incredible grace and humility. Despite drawing constant double teams and being the most fouled player in virtually every game, he always maintains his focus and composure. I am not at all surprised that he has been named the Most Valuable Player of the EIL in his freshman season.”
Earlier this year, Herivaux was named one of the top five under-17 players to watch in the world by FourFourTwo magazine. He is also a member of the New England Revolution Under-16 youth team.
