Athlete of the Week: Eric Nesto
The Measure’s Mustang athlete of the week is Eric Nesto! Eric is a senior on the boys’ varsity soccer team. He is a leader on and off the field who takes great pride in his team. Eric is a key component to the team’s success so far this season.
As the Mustang’s center midfield player, Eric controls the pace of the game by distributing the ball from the defensive to the offensive end. He is “in the thick of all the action” (Nesto (I)), generating the intensity in both the defensive and the offensive halves of play. Playing the team’s core position, Eric is always an impact player for Milton.
Eric has great confidence in his team and their play thus far this season. He states with pride, “We have improved with every game that we have played”. The Mustangs have a stronger record than they have had in a long time. The exciting games have been close, back-and-forth matches. “We are trying to bring the excitement surrounding the boys’ soccer team back and I think we are doing a good job,” Nesto says, “but we have a lot left to do.” Eric has a positive outlook for the remaining season. He is excited that “the guys have been doing well with focus and fitness.”
The Mustangs hope to “pull 6 points away from” the big games coming up this week. They will play St. Marks and Rivers away. Their next home game will be Wednesday, October 26 at 3:45 against St. Paul’s. Eric encourages everyone to “get out and watch a game!”
