EFC Representing in Section 1 Awards

Eastern FC Players (and Coaches) Representing in Section 1 Awards

Congratulations to all players in Section 1 High School Soccer. Eastern FC has players from all over the tri-state area. Last week, Section 1 of New York State hosted the All Section Boys Soccer Awards. These athletes were awarded as representing the top 4% of players in High School Soccer for the 2017 season.

Alex Leahy was the top award winner. The EFC Spartan that was named League Player of the Year was awarded with the top honor of Small Schools PLAYER OF THE YEAR. Alex is the 4th  EFC player in 6 years to earn this award in Section 1 HS Boys Soccer. In addition, he was awarded with the All State honor.

A fellow EFC Spartan, Oliver Kleban (Blind Brook HS), was also named to the All State Team. In addition, Carlos Interiano (EFC Spartan, Mamaroneck HS), Andre Gheillerman (EFC Spartan, Eastchester HS), and Marc Kyriakidis (EFC Real, Pleasantville HS) were honored as All Section Award recepients. In addition, Jan Bacerra (EFC Real, Pleasantville HS) and Romel Ayala (EFC Spartans, Alexander Hamilton HS) earned All Section Honorable Mention.

EFC Real Assistant Coach, Savvas Kyrkiakidis (Pleasantville HS), earned League Coach of the Year.

EFC 2008 City Head Coach, Kirk Bamford (Hastings HS), was also named League Coach of the Year for coaching the Hastings Girls Varsity Soccer team.


Below is a write up of all of the All Section Award Winners. Congratulations to you all and thank you for making our entire club proud of you.

Alex Leahy, Senior, Briarcliff Manor HS

All Section, League MVP, All State, Section 1 Small Schools Player of the Year

Alex was a four-year varsity player and captain who is one of the most versatile players in Bears history playing almost every single position (except for Goalkeeper) throughout his career. This year he led the team in assists and scored 7 goals. 4 of his 7 goals were game winners and 3 of his 5 assists set up game winners. That combines for 7 of the Bears 15 wins this season. In playoffs, he scored points in every game leading up to the final including the golden goal game winner in overtime of the quarterfinals and the assist in the semis. Alex will continue to play soccer in college next year.

 

Oliver Kleban, Senior, Blind Brook HS

All Section, All State

Oliver was an offensive threat in every game he played. He scored 20 goals on the year and recorded 7 assists on the season. He played in a total of 17 games and scored in 15 of the 17 games he played in. Oliver will continue his playing career at NYU.

Carlos Interiano, Senior, Mamaroneck HS

All Section

Carlos was the Senior Captain.  He was a 3 year varsity starter.  Carlos anchored a defense, which gave up less than a goal per game this year.  Carlos also assisted two game winning goals this year. He has left his mark on Mamaroneck soccer with his tremendous leadership on and off the field.  Carlos’s leadership in the back will be missed next year as he moves on to play in college.

Andre Gheilerman, Senior, Eastchester

All Section

Andre was the playmaker for the Eastchester eagles. He’s the one that the team would look to control the game with his skills and vision to connect with his teammates, contributing offensively with 16 goals and 11 assists. A leader on and off the field, he made a huge impact on the Eagles this year.

Marc Kyriakidis, Junior, Pleasantville HS

All Section

Marc is a 2 year varsity starter following in the footsteps of his two all section older brothers. A leader, role model, and player who played through injury while setting the standard with his ferocious, tireless work rate on both sides of the ball making him a dangerous and exciting player to watch. He led the team in scoring and points and was towards the top in section 1 finishing with 12 goals & 4 assists. His game winning goal with 2 minutes left clinched the first league title in 23 years for Pleasantville High School.

Youth Development Program (Ages 4-7)

SUNDAYS

10:30-11:30am

Eastern's Youth Development Program (YDP) targets the development of youth players. Our high quality coaching and specifically designed curriculum will develop players both technically and tactically, while fostering a love for the game. At these ages, individual technique, foot speed, balance, foot skills, and small-sided games are vital for player development. This will be the foundation for our YDP program.


Premier Player Development Program (Ages 8-12)

SUNDAYS

11:30am-12:30pm

This program is designed to help players get to the next level. Our EFC Premier Coaching Staff will be differentiating this group so that all players receive optimal development in the technical areas of the game. The program is specifically designed to develop players in a small group setting and create a natural transition to small sided games to guarantee maximum touches to improve development. The curriculum includes a significant focus on technical ability in small spaces to improve speed of play and decision-making on the field.


Special Topics Goalkeeping & Finishing (Ages 12+)

SUNDAYS

12:30pm-1:30pm

This program will focus on the development of BOTH Goalkeepers and Finishing for Field Players.

For Goalkeepers, each training session focuses on the technical and tactical components of goalkeeping in order to develop goalkeepers into leaders on the field. An EFC Goalkeeper Coach, will lead goalkeepers through a curriculum focusing on improving fundamental catching, breakaways, shot stopping, diving, and communication in defense.

For ALL field players, finishing is a critical skill whether you are defender or attacker. These sessions will focus on the fundamentals of shooting, shot placement, vision of the goal, and the technical components to create goal scoring opportunities for your team.

In addition, each training session will incorporate the field players and goalkeepers to create real game situations for both.
