ALL-NEBRASKA SOCCER

Captains found success in different ways but share common trait as teams' kick starter

Boys
All-Nebraska
First Team

Captain

Ed Gordon,
Omaha Creighton Prep

Jack Finocchiaro,
Omaha Westside

The sparkplug for Class A’s runner-up, Finocchiaro notched 22 goals and eight assists as a senior. That was after finishing with 25 goals and 12 assists as a junior. Scoring seemed to come in bunches throughout Finocchiaro’s career. He registered hat tricks in three of five postseason matches in 2017 after having five such games as a junior.

Diego Gutierrez,
Ralston

He’s not just the state’s all-time leading goal scorer. Gutierrez is the top offensive threat in several years. The Hastings recruit was the focus of every defense the Rams faced this season, and still managed to tie for the state lead with 35 goals. In five postseason matches — including one at state — Gutierrez scored nine of his team’s 11 goals.

Nolan Dillon,
Fremont

The secret to Fremont’s first winning season since 2009 — they were a combined 32-76 the previous seven years — was no secret. Dillon, an Alabama-Huntsville recruit, tallied 35 goals and five assists. Before a shutout loss in a district final ended his career, Dillon had scored 16 times in the Tigers’ previous five matches.

Hunter Albers,
Elkhorn South

A model of consistency, Albers scored in 16 of his team’s 20 matches this season. And they all happened to be wins. His winner in overtime of the Class B state championship capped an unbeaten campaign for the Storm. Albers also scored the lone goal in Elkhorn South’s 1-0 semifinal win. He followed up an 18-goal junior year with 29 as a senior.

Jonathan Velasquez,
Lincoln North Star

Instant offense. The junior forward had 11 games this season with two or more goals and just four games with one goal. He scored the final two of his 29 goals in a 3-2 loss to Millard West in the state tournament, North Star’s second appearance in program history.

Zach Robbins,
Omaha Burke

Robbins was as solid as they come in the midfield, and his competitiveness rubbed off on his team. Of the Bulldogs’ eight losses, one was by more than a single score. He scored 10 goals — giving him 32 for his career — and dished out seven assists as a senior. Robbins will play at Tulsa next season.

Erik Fahner,
Millard West

The leading scorer for a team that reached the state semifinals for the third straight season, Fahner finished with 14 goals and four assists. The Drake recruit was a three-year starter for the Wildcats, playing on the 2015 state championship squad.

Jackson Ferris,
Omaha Central

A midfielder playing defense, Ferris was a four-year starter in the back for the Eagles. One of the stingiest defenders in the state, he helped Central to the state tournament in 2016, ending a nearly 20-year drought for the Eagles. He scored five of his career 10 goals as a freshman.

Isaac Cruz,
Omaha South

The key cog in the Packers’ back line, Cruz started all four years for South. Included in that was a run to the 2016 state title in which the Packers blanked Westside in the semifinals and Prep for the crown. His toughness was a driving force in 28 Packer shutouts the last three seasons.

Matt Smith,
Omaha Creighton Prep

The senior goalkeeper showed his mettle in the state semifinals, stopping a pair of kicks and smashing home his own attempt to lift the Junior Jays to a shootout win over Kearney. He followed it up with his 15th shutout of the year in the championship. The UNO recruit surrendered eight goals in his final two seasons combined.

Girls
All-Nebraska
First Team

Captain

Hannah Davis,
Lincoln Southwest

Skylar Heinrich,
Elkhorn

All of Nebraska’s scoring records are within reach for the sophomore forward. The Creighton recruit followed up a freshman season with 33 goals by tallying 38 this year. With two more strong campaigns, she could challenge the state’s all-time record of 146. She was perhaps the most dangerous player in the state with the ball at her feet.

Bailey Cascio,
Millard North

The two-time All-Nebraska pick capped a standout career with 22 goals and four assists. The UNO recruit racked up 35 goals and 21 assists the previous two seasons. The forward scored two goals or more seven times as a senior. The Mustangs played in three title games in Cascio’s four years.

Lindsey Prokop,
Millard South

Through her first two seasons, the forward has 43 goals — 21 coming this year — and 11 assists. She finished third in Class A in points as a sophomore, scoring four or more goals three times. Prokop, a UMKC recruit, will be one of Class A’s top returning players in 2018.

Courtney Wallingford,
Bellevue West

The ultimate distributor in the midfield, Wallingford set a record for career assists (71), 12 more than the previous mark. The Oral Roberts recruit also matched the Class A mark for helpers in a match this season, tallying six against Omaha Bryan.

Rachel Johnson,
Omaha Marian

A repeat first-team selection, Johnson battled through an ankle injury to help the Crusaders to a second straight Class A championship. Numbers don’t tell the story of the Marquette recruit. Her perfectly placed free kick in the state final was her 10th of the season, a career high.

Emma Nelson,
Omaha Marian

The senior patrolled the midfield for Marian, giving the state’s top team a presence in space. Nelson scored two of her five goals this season in the opening round of the state tournament, lifting the Crusaders to a 2-0 win. They would go on to win their third title in four years.

Kenzie Harte,
Millard North

The do-it-all senior split time in the back — where she was perhaps the top lockdown defender in the state — and up front, where she provided a physical presence that opened up space for Millard North’s attack. Harte, a South Dakota recruit, scored 11 goals for the second straight season.

Madi McKeever,
Omaha Skutt

The Northwest Missouri State recruit’s final game was a snapshot of her career. McKeever and the SkyHawk defense locked down Columbus Scotus in a 3-0 win for a second straight Class B title. She added a goal and an assist in the match, showing the versatility that made her so valuable.

Emily Torres,
Omaha Westside

After starting in goal as a freshman, Torres became one of the state’s top defenders her final three seasons. The Army recruit helped the Warriors to nine shutouts and wins over four state tournament qualifiers, including victories over Class A finalists Millard North and Omaha Marian in a six-day span.

Sydney Cassalia,
Millard West

Make it three first-team selections in three seasons for the senior keeper. The Army recruit missed time late in the season with a high ankle sprain, but returned to help lead the Wildcats to the state semifinals for the 12th straight year. She was the winning keeper in a 2015 state championship shootout victory.

Ratings: Final 2017 Nebraska girls

It’s easy to pick out the best player on any field Hannah Davis is on. The Lincoln Southwest star has a pair of 40-goal seasons and a handful of Class A scoring records on her résumé.

Ed Gordon’s game is more behind the scenes. Even the best of midfielders like the Omaha Creighton Prep standout can still blend in at times.

Davis and Gordon may go about their business in different ways, but the two have one unmistakable thing in common.

Once you start watching them, your eyes will rarely roam.

It’s one of the many reasons that Davis and Gordon are the honorary captains of The World-Herald’s All-Nebraska teams. Selections are based on staff observations and the nominations of coaches.

Gordon is a repeat selection as the top player in the state. The UNO recruit led Prep to the finals for the third straight season, and for the first time left with a title.

“To finally have that happen after losing in that game twice, it’s unreal,” Gordon said. “Ever since I was a little kid I wanted to come out and watch the big kids play at Morrison Stadium. Having the opportunity to come out and be on that field, and then win, was a dream come true.”

Junior Jays co-coach Tom Hoover said Gordon set a high bar for a program that already sets the standard for success in Nebraska high school soccer.

Gordon “brought it” every day, Hoover said.

“Even in the coin toss,” Hoover said. “He never took a moment off. He was single-minded. It was a this-is-how-we-do-it kind of mentality.”

He was just as persistent between the lines. He did the dirty work. It was never about numbers. Four of his seven career goals came this season.

Goal scorers often get the headlines, but Gordon is fine being the guy who sets up the score if it means he’s on the winning side.

“Scoring goals is hard. It’s not easy,” Gordon said. “You watch Cristiano Ronaldo and (Lionel) Messi, they score goals. They’re on the front page. But there’s guys that do a lot of work to get them in position to be successful and get things to run well.

“It’s hard work, but that’s what I grew up doing. And I love that.”

Gordon’s ability to cover so much ground in the midfield is the “cornerstone” of a good team, Hoover said.

“You build on that,” he added. “You just go into the game knowing you have that part of the field taken care of. When he was on, that 40-yard area in the middle of the field was taken care of. You knew Ed was going to command it.”

Gordon admitted that his fire wasn’t always best for the team’s success. It was never negative or pessimistic, Hoover said. But a slow start by a squad that brought back 15 seniors can be frustrating.

What Gordon found while his final season progressed was that people respond differently to different forms of motivation.

“You want your leader to be vocal and demanding,” Hoover said. “You want wise heads on young shoulders. With Ed it was an evolution. He got the message loud and clear that there was a better way to do it. He saw the dividends paid.”

Davis led in a different way — from out front.

A natural scorer, the Kansas State recruit put up gaudy numbers for a second consecutive season. A junior campaign in which she finished with 40 goals and 11 assists put Davis in position to take down a record that had stood for 20 years.

She didn’t just become the first girl in Class A history to score 100 career goals. She tacked on 17 more, breaking the class single-season scoring mark along the way. That one had been around for a quarter of a century. Davis also broke the Class A record for goals in a match with eight against Fremont in early April.

“Looking at the sheer numbers,” Southwest coach Thomas Nettleton said, “those are significant accomplishments.”

Especially impressive is the career mark, considering Davis was limited during her sophomore season. An ACL injury at the end of her freshman year cost her a large chunk of the following campaign.

She called watching practices and games “the worst thing ever.”

Davis made up for lost time with 86 goals and 28 assists her final two seasons.

“When we needed the biggest boosts, she was always up to the task and met the challenges head on,” Nettleton said. “But I think 20 years from now, I probably won’t think about the numbers, I’ll think about the moments.”

Like getting the Silver Hawks into the state semifinals the past three seasons and winning three Heartland Athletic Conference titles.

Nettleton said he rarely needed to motivate his forward.

“All competitors are clever to find ways to internally push themselves,” he said. “Hannah has that in abundance.”

Said Davis: “All the time when someone says I can’t do something, I’m always like, ‘Bet. Let’s go.’ Because I want to show you that I can. I kind of just try to show everyone that I can do things because I feel like a lot of people doubt me.”

She’ll likely lean on that mindset at the next level. At 5-foot-5, Davis will be on the smaller side among Division I forwards. She said the Kansas State staff told her she’ll get every opportunity to work her way into becoming a featured player in their attack.

Nettleton thinks she’ll be just fine up front in college, thanks in large part to her ability to create her own space.

“She’s really savvy in finding her room in shape,” Nettleton said. “She’s smart enough to find her way into a game. If there’s more of a buildup, she’ll be fine and if it’s direct we all know she has pace for days.”

Davis and Gordon lead a strong senior class that filled all but three positions on the All-Nebraska first teams. By comparison, there were seven juniors on last year’s teams.
