Ashton LeBlanc – Gatorade Boys Soccer Player of the Year for Mississippi

Congratulations to Ashton LeBlanc of Gulfport High School for being named Gatorade Mississippi Boys Soccer Player of the Year!

 

According to a press release from Gatorade, the 6-foot, 165-pound junior defender led the Admirals to a 18-4-3 record and the Class 6A state championship this past season. LeBlanc was the anchor of a defense that notched 12 shutouts and allowed just one goal in four postseason games. He was a First Team All-State selection and a Coast Coaches All-Star Team honoree. 

 

A member of the Model United Nations at Gulfport High, LeBlanc has volunteered locally as a youth soccer coach. “Ashton was a leader of our defense,” said Henrik Madsen, head coach of Gulfport High. “He was the hardest-working player in every practice.” He will begin his senior year of high school this fall. 

 

Fellow Admiral Jarred Arde won the same honor for 2009-10.
