Congradulations, Soony Saad

The 2009-2010 Gatorade National (USA) Boys Soccer Player Of The Year was awarded to Soony Saad of Dearborn, MI.

He set a state single-season record with 76 goals and also recorded 15 assists in his senior year for the Dearborn High School Pioneers (18-2-2,) and recorded a state-record 172 goals along with 51 assists over his four years of high school.

It's amazing that I've not run across his name before, as I live in the same area (Hazel Park... which is sort of just on the other side of Detroit from Dearborn.) I found the following highlight clip on Youtube, and from what I can see, yeah, this kid's got some potential...
