Five to watch

Snohomish County is loaded with outstanding boys soccer players. Get to know a few of the standouts.

Teddy Wingo



This University of Vermont recruit and All-Wesco South first-team selection is considered one of the best defenders in the league. Look for this co-captain to anchor a talented Shorecrest team into the 3A playoffs.

Jordan Correa


Junior/ Midfielder-Forward

A Wesco South second-team selection as a sophomore, Correa had a breakthrough year that is bound to carry over. Correa will display his quickness and foot skills on the front line for the Meadowdale Mavericks.

Evan Steinruck

Lake Stevens

Senior/ Forward

With Lake Stevens graduating 2/3 of its goal scoring from last season, Steinruck will lead a young Vikings team in arguably the toughest league in the state. Steinruck, who is 6-foot-4, scored 14 goals with three coming in the Vikings’ state-playoff run.

Mike Jones


Senior/ Midfielder

The Spartans’ leading scorer will try to carry Stanwood into the district playoffs. Jones, a Wesco North second-team selection, will display his work ethic along with his speed in directing the Stanwood offense.

AJ Gonzales


Senior/ Midfielder

A first-team All-Cascade Conference player last season, Gonzales will look to power a talented Sultan team through the conference. Blessed with great soccer vision, Gonzales will try to make his teammates better by setting them up for goal-scoring opportunities.
