Student leadership honored

Noah Mains was nominated for and awarded by his Jordan Small Middle School teammates the Caden Theriault Ultimate Teammate Award for the 2019 soccer season. Coach Jim Beers created the award in honor of Caden Theriault in 2016 to bring to light the hard work Caden represented, both on and off the field.

“Noah was our driving force this year, as he played multiple positions on the field, always defended the other team’s best player and could be counted on to be a leader for us,” Beers said. “At practices he always was one of the last to leave, constantly helping me pick up equipment. Noah took on an ‘assistant coaching’ role as well, holding his teammates accountable when needed and picking them up when needed as well. His hard work and desire for the game sets big examples for our younger players that will return next season.”
