FOUR & MORE: Best BSOC Players
1. Alfredo Moreira, MoVal Rancho Verde – Slick senior midfielder went on the attack and earned plenty of attention for his deceptively quick style as the Mustangs advanced to the CIF-State playoffs last season. Led his squad with 20 goals and 13 assists.
2. Andres Garcia, Ontario Chaffey – Mercurial goal-scorer was good for a goal a game as a junior last season, but he has the talent to score in bunches. Led all San Bernardino County players with 26 goals.
3. Alec Hooper, Redlands East Valley – Tremendous complimentary piece (19 goals, eights assists) on the Wildcats’ 2015 CIF-Southern Section Division 3 championship team. Must now lead.
4. Alejandro Pimentel, Thermal Desert Mirage — Unheralded member of Rams’ perfect 26-0-0 season, scoring 25 goals with 11 assists as a sophomore.
Abdul Badawiya, Sr., Riverside King – Scoring is in the family, had 13 goals while sister was the area’s best player.
