Posted Thursday, March 05, 2009 by Fohi Manager
Saul Diaz received a high honor this week being the Citrus Belt League's Most Valuable Player.   This is the second consecutive year that a FoHi Steeler (Antonio Salazar, 2008) has received the League's most distinguished honor.  Saul carried the steelers to an impressive regular season; his twenty eight goals and twenty four assists this season helped carry the team to Back To Back League Championships.

Along with Saul, Junior Defender Alfonso Cano, Senior Forward Antonio Salazar, and Senior Midfielder Erick Madrid, earned First Team All League Selections.  Alfonso Cano was a critical transition and offensive weapon for the steelers.  Antonio Salazar followed up on last year's twenty three team high goals scored, with eighteen goals scored this year.  Erick Madrid netted eight goals and thirteen assists this season; an improvement from his three goals and tens assists from last season.

Senior Defender Luis Negrete, Senior Forward Christian Camacho, and Sophmore Defender Isac Fonseca earned the 2nd Team All League Honors this year.  Luis is the first player in the history of the program to play every minute of every game in his three years on the Varsity Team.  Luis Negrete was a wall for forwards; Luis is smart, aggressive, and composed when defending the best forwards in the County.  Christian Camacho's five goals and thirteen assists were a blessing come through as the college bound senior managed to successfully overcome a life threatening and season ending injury from a year ago.   Isac Fonseca earned his mark as the future of the Steelers defense showing composure and strength in the backfield.  There is so much potential for the youngster, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Finally, Johnathan Madrid rounds out the All League Selection with an Honorable Mention Selection.  The Frosh Centermidfielder rose to the challlenge in 09, he finished the year with two goals and five assists, but more importantly the Stud showed signs of his brilliance and his ball control skills as he became a real threat for many teams throughout Southern California.

Congratulations to you all, keep up the hardwork.
