All-Hancock County Team 2015: Boys Soccer
Josh Powell, Mt. Vernon
Powell was as dominant as any goalkeeper in the state this season with 11 shutouts, 204 saves (third in state) and 14 goals allowed. He recorded a season-high 25 saves in a 5-1 win against Columbus East and was named to the All-Hoosier Heritage Conference team.
Timmy Clone, Mt. Vernon
Clone, Mt. Vernon’s youngest starter, finished second on the team in goals (11), including five in the first three games. Clone was named to the All-HHC team, and his speed mixed with Carson Jones’ finesse gives Mt. Vernon a scary 1-2 punch heading into next season.
Jarret Whitehouse, Mt. Vernon
Whitehouse led the county and tied for the conference lead in assists this season. He scored five goals on the season, including two against Beech Grove. Whitehouse tallied an assist in nine contests with a season-high three against Muncie Burris.
Carson Jones, Mt. Vernon
Jones was second in the county in goals (16) despite a relatively slow start to the season. Jones added six assists from his forward position and scored a goal in 14 games this season. His season-high came against Hamilton Heights and Richmond (2). Jones also was named All-HHC.
Seth Luke, Mt. Vernon
Like Whitehouse, Luke was instrumental to the Marauders offense in the middle of the field. He finished the season with five goals and three assists. Luke was near the top of the team in minutes played and will have an even bigger role on next year’s team.
Enrique Ferrara, Greenfield-Central
Ferrara once again led the Cougars and the county in goals scored (18). A three-time all-county selection, the senior broke Nick Richards’ career record for goals (65) set in 2001 with 67. Ferrara also holds the record for most points in a career (160). He was named All-HHC.
Luke Tuttle, Greenfield-Central
When teams weren’t marking Enrique Ferrara, they were paying close attention to Tuttle. Third on the team with seven goals, the junior dished out five assists spread out over five different matches. Tuttle scored a season-high two goals against Fishers and earned All-HHC honors.
Erik Silvey, New Palestine
Other than Josh Powell, there was no other goalkeeper as effective this season as Silvey. The All-HHC first team selection posted seven shutouts and recorded 193 saves in 1,364 minutes. He allowed 0.8 goals on average and a mere 13 in 17 matches played. Two of his 12 wins were in shootouts.
Nick Martin, New Palestine
The New Palestine defense never rested, and a big reason was Martin’s tenacious play in the back. Named to the All-Hoosier Heritage Conference first team, the defender helped the Dragons hold opposing teams to 0.8 goals on average and 14 overall. New Pal finished 12-5-1.
Spencer Corey, New Palestine
Splitting his time between football and soccer, Corey held nothing back for the Dragons. A key defender, the junior recorded one assist on offense but aided in New Palestine’s seven shutout wins, including the team’s six HHC victories compared to one loss to tie Mt. Vernon for the title.
Ryan Miller, New Palestine
Miller led New Palestine with six goals and provided four assists for a team that prided itself on defense to create offense. The Dragons scored only 25 goals but reached the sectional finals after winning a sudden death shootout against Greenfield-Central. Miller was named All-HHC.
Honorable mentions: Devin Nelson, Josh Williams, Matthew Schafer, Jeffrey Boxberger (Mt. Vernon); Kyle Doss, Caleb Eagleson, James Pridgen (New Palestine); Sean Julian, Jack Sifferlen, Justin Miller, Westyn Wood (Greenfield-Central).
