Congratulations to Josh Mackie for being named Athlete of the Week. The Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes at Socastee High School in partnership with the athletic department sponsor this weekly award.
Josh is a senior on the boys’ varsity soccer team and has been playing the sport for 15 years. Josh and the Braves are off to a hot start this season holding a perfect record in the region standings at 8-0 and an impressive overall record of 16-3. “My favorite thing about soccer is scoring goals and celebrating with my team,” said Josh. Josh will take his talents to the next level as he just signed with Wofford College last week. Before Josh heads off to Spartanburg to be a Terrier, he and the Braves will look to close out the region with a perfect record and prepare to make a deep playoff run.
Coach Owen made the following remarks about his star player: “Last week at West Florence and Carolina Forest he led the team to be 7-0 in the Region with a total of 6 goals and 4 assists, just in those two games. In just about every way, he is the leader of this team.”
