Carlos Fabian Named March "Athlete of the Month"

Carlos Fabian with Mr. PooreFor the month of March, soccer is the sport of choice for our Athlete of the Month. Carlos Fabian is a 16-year-old sophomore at Hall High School, and has been a member of the Hall Soccer team since his freshman year. He has made significant contributions toward the success of the team as its first choice goalkeeper. Fabian's goalkeeping skills coupled with his acrobatic moves help him to make saves that have resulted into conceding only 3 goals in three games – hence the team’s current conference standing of 3-0. Not only is Carlos an outstanding athlete, he is an AVID student!
