Athlete of the Month: Collin Mazgaloff

Senior Collin Mazgaloff is a committed high school soccer player, not to mention a good team leader. He’s been playing competitive soccer for five years as a center/right defender, and he’s considering playing club soccer in college.

Mazgaloff is a team captain, and his teammates look up to for encouragement and criticism.

“Pretty much everyone is relying on you to raise the spirit of the team while simultaneously keeping them serious and focused,” he said.

Soccer is such a dynamic sport that it would be so easy to pick a favorite part. For Mazgaloff, he enjoys the, “physical, communicative, and teamwork aspects. Reliance is also very important; knowing that your teammate can count on you and that you can count on them is really what allows you to move the ball up the field.”

In terms of career highlights, Mazgaloff doesn’t have a specific highlight from a specific game.

“They just happen from game to game, there are certain moments where you can really uplift the team emotionally and mentally. There are other times where you bring the spirit of the team up by scoring that last minute goal or making that risky pass.”

Clearly, soccer is his passion, something he takes pride in. So go out and support the boys varsity soccer team, maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of this amazing player!

    I personally know Colin, but did not know he was the captain of the soccer team. I will continue to support CVHS sports teams and cheer them on.
