Green Hope junior boys soccer player Camden Holbrook was named the N.C. Gatorade Player of the Year award winner on Monday.
Holbrook led the Falcons to a 28-1 record and the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4A championship in 2016, scoring 17 goals to go with 24 assists. He’s a two-time conference player of the year and the second Green Hope player to win the award (Stephen Bickford won it twice in 2004 and 2005).
He joins recent Triangle players to win the Gatorade Player of the Year: Franklin Academy’s Nicholas Hughes (2015), Cardinal Gibbons’ Ade Taiwo (2012), Athens Drive’s Cooper Vandermaas-Peeler (2010), Jordan’s Teddy Mullin (2009) and Broughton’s Watt Williams (2007).
According to a press release, he is also a member of the Green Hope drama club and “has volunteered locally delivering food to the elderly.”
