After winning the district championships last year, the Center Hill High School boys soccer team is ready to repeat. And the student body is more than happy to facilitate, even chanting “complete the sweep” at the winter sports’ pep rally Nov. 17.

The team graduated a lot of seniors last year, but head coach Andrew Yeoman insists that they are not in a rebuilding year.

“We are returning starters at key positions,” Yeoman said. “I think a large amount of the county will think that, but by no means is this year a rebuild.”

Coming off a great season last year, Yeoman had one word for his team: Prove.

“They’ve got to prove to themselves and this community that they can win a division title,” he said. ”It’s too early to tell for sure, but their undefeated 6-0 start is certainly impressive.”

Brayden Hellums is a junior on the team.

“Our team has brought in a lot of young talent, mixed in with talented juniors and seniors, and we have a great coach to guide us,” Hellums said. “That’s why we have been winning, and will continue to win.”

This year’s senior captains are Erick Mendoza and Cyle Paulino.

So far, the Mustangs have defeated New Albany 1-0, South Panola 7-0, Pontotoc 2-1, Horn Lake 2-0, Southaven 2-1, and Senatobia 7-0.

The Mustangs will host Lafayette Dec. 1 before traveling to Saltillo Dec. 2.
