George Birch missed last year with a shoulder injury; he spent it as Staples' 1st-ever videographer.

Juniors George Birch and AJ Green have been elected co-captains of the 2009 Staples junior varsity squad.

With George’s brother Harry as 1 of the freshman team co-captains, this could be the first brother JV-freshman captain combo in Staples history.  AJ adds the dimension of possibly being the 1st captain known only by his initials.

  1. Mr. Woog,

    I’m sorry to say but this may be the lamest fact ever.

    “AJ adds the dimension of possibly being the 1st captain known only by his initials.”

    I have seen AJ play in the U-16 games with a friend of mine, Henrick Jamison, and we can both say that AJ is a very versatile player. I am sure there are more things to say about him rather than his initials.

  2. I agree whole heartedly with Mags. Her, Henrick and I were avid supporters of this years U-16s and AJ was quite a talent. I believe the dimension he will add to the jayvees is not only his initials but also his willingness to immerse himself in the lifestyle of Staples soccer. I’ve been a resident for 10 years now and I will say there is nothing better. And about being the first captain known for his initials? Well, there’s a first for everything!

    Truly Inspired,

    Rich
