Arsenal Alum in PARADE Magazine
Be sure to get a look at this past weekend's Parade section of your newspaper.
Our very own Amber Brooks has been named the number 1 HS Player of the
Year in the country. For those who do not know, Amber played on the Arsenal
U18 girls team for the past four years. She helped her Arsenal team win a
number of State and Regional Championships. Amber was also on the U17 U.S.
National team that took second place in this years first ever U17 World Cup in
New Zealand this past fall.
Interesting pipeline as Amber is headed to UNC and will fill a void
created by the graduation of another Arsenal alumni, Yael Averbuch. Yael was
also a Parade All American in HS. She set the UNC school record with 105
starts, set the NCAA record for the fastest goal scored; 4 seconds into a game
and was an Academic All American at UNC. She has since moved on to the pro
ranks as the number one draft choice of Sky Blue FC and the number three
pick in the league overall.
I know I speak for everyone in saying how proud we are of Amber's
accomplishments. The Arsenal club should take pride in knowing that we helped her achieve such great frecognition by providing a competitive club where she could grow as a player.
We wish Amber all the best in her future endeavors at UNC and with the
National teams. Ambers's drive and work ethic will serve her well in every
aspect of her very bright future.
