James Hickok Named To All-State Team

Junior captain James Hickok has been named to the Connecticut Soccer Coaches Association All-State team.

This is the 4th year in a row the Wreckers have had an All-State player — but he is the 1st Staples goalkeeper selected by the CSCA since Alex Deegan in 1990.

James Hickok

The honor is based, in part, on coaches’ rankings of players on All-League teams.  James, Jake Malowitz and Taylor McNair were the Wreckers’ 3 All-FCIAC selections.

The Connecticut All-State players will be feted on January 29, at a dinner at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington.

James registered 12 shutouts this year.  He allowed just 13 goals in 21 games.

“I’m very glad for James,” said head coach Dan Woog.  “He’s worked tremendously hard on all aspects of his game — from dominating the box to distribution to communication.  He’s got a fantastic mentor in our keeper coach, Tom Henske, and this honor is really a tribute to both of them.”

  3. James deserves this significant recognition based not only from his superior play, but the solid intangibles that he consistently brings to the field every day. He leads by example; he has a strong work ethic in everything he does; he looks at the bigger picture and doesn’t worry about the noise; and he is a great teammate. James defines the very best of Staples soccer, both on and off the field. I am sure that Preston is looking down with a big smile on his face and saying “boy that kid is good and I am proud that he was the chosen one to wear my number #15”. Well done James!!! You will go very far in life – just keep doing what you are doing (and keep listening to Tom!). Congratulations- You honestly make the program proud and a much better place. The Gudis Family

  4. Congrats James! Well deserved.
