Every year the Senior Soccer Classic is played at the Metrodome. Representing Benilde St-Margaret’s in the 2012 boys’ soccer classic, senior forward Jake Sherman scored a goal and came away with the Most Valuable Player award for the 1A team. The best seniors from the 1A division come to play the best from the 2A. All of the players participating were All-State players that showed promise and talent in the regular season. “It was a fun game. The tempo was very high paced, and our line played good” Sherman said.

Although his goal did little to hinder the 2A all stars, who came away with a 6-1 win, it was a goal nonetheless, and a good one at that. “I beat the kid and some guy hit me from behind when I shot it, but it went in,” Sherman said.

Sherman was very proud and grateful to represent the Red Knights during a game like this. “I had to go out there and show my stuff and play hard for BSM, and it paid off,” Sherman said.

Sherman’s high school career came to a close after the game, but that didn’t stop him from celebrating his moment as MVP. “It was a good way to end it. I got a ball and a jersey for the MVP thing too, which was a plus,” Sherman said.
