Hillsborough: All-county boys soccer

Boys soccer

T.J. Roehn, Jr., Berkeley Prep

Why we picked him: Roehn, a forward, had surgery before the season and there were questions as to whether he would miss his junior year, coach Tim Cooper said. Roehn played but was often double- and triple-teamed. In the playoffs, he scored seven goals and had six assists through the state semifinals before a leg injury, which had a profound impact in a 2-1 loss.

Most impressive accomplishment: Roehn's preseason injury forced him to go from an explosive goal scorer to more of a team player. He scored 26 goals and added 21 assists anyway.

Future plans: Roehn, who plans to play in college, is looking at Indiana, Maryland, Duke and USF.

Did you know? Not too long ago, Roehn starred in a dodgeball tournament and found himself looking at the opponent and facing elimination. Roehn caught the ball and won the tournament for his team.
