The “Player Spotlight” highlights players pursuing and achieving excellence both on and off the field. Our goal is to celebrate and inspire our community as we honor our outstanding athletes and share their diverse achievements (ie scholastic, multi-sport, leadership, community service, etc.). If you would like to nominate a player, please let us know and please send soccer photo as well as any other photos of your athlete relevant to submission. Email: SpringsSoccerClub@gmail.com.
Congratulations to Lukas Linder, SSC’s “Player Spotlight” for November 2020.
Lukas, SSC Advanced Development Program player, has been playing soccer since he was 5 years old. In his first game he put a ball in the back of the net from almost no angle and when asked how he did it he said "I knew if I put the ball up high, that the goalie couldn't stop it" and from then on it was clear he would be a special soccer player. He is also one of the fastest players on the field. In their most recent game against Parkland, an offensive player slipped 10 yards behind him and received a pass. Lukas caught up to him in 20 yards. When he isn't at the field he is out in the yard playing soccer with his little brother, his friends, or sometimes just by himself. He LOVES soccer.
When he isn't playing soccer (which isn't often), Lukas is in the gifted 3rd grade class at Country Hills Elementary. He is an awesome big brother and he loves his pets too. He is also a TV star having appeared on the season 30 finale of America's Funniest Home Videos.
