FAIRMONT - It's that time of the year. The 2012 soccer season is now a thing of the past.
Among those who will leave a lasting legacy is Charleston Catholic's Sam Revercomb, who notched 36 goals while pacing his team to a fourth straight state championship.
"Sam was instrumental in helping our team this year,'' Charleston Catholic coach Sam Fox said. "For four years, he's been a unique player for the program at Charleston Catholic.''
Now he has been named captain of the Class AA-A all-state team, as chosen by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.
In a 5-0 victory against Fairmont Senior in the state title game, Revercomb capped his immaculate career with a goal, which pushed his career total to 87 scored.
Revercomb not only can could score goals through traffic while having flawless ball-handling skills, but he also helped the Irish when using the famous 'long-ball' offense.
"If you've ever saw him play, he has so much natural speed. Because of Sam's speed, we could play long ball,'' Fox stated.
Of course, long ball is where you kick the ball down the field and hope the striker can outrun everybody and score a goal.
"That aspect of Sam's play helped because he's so tall, so big and so fast ... he could just outrun other kids to the ball,'' Fox said.
