Manti's Garcia Named 2A Soccer MVP
Published on June 13, 2012 at 07:19AM
Manti soccer flew under the radar all season long, avoiding the spotlight only to emerge as the unexpected 2A state champions in the end. Carlo Garcia, a lethal striker and integral team captain for the Templars, certainly turned heads during the tournament run, and was recently named the 2A MVP. Garcia proved more than deserving of an MVP award, scoring a goal in each playoff contest and finishing just one goal shy of the state’s top scorer with 25 goals. Garcia notched several games with multiple goals, including a victory over Millard in which he found the net five different times. Though his plan is to play college soccer, the recruiters may have their work cut out for them. He’s already being looked at for his achievements as the star kicker on Manti’s championship football team.
