Ram continues scoring rampage
Ian Clark's Corner Kicks: Special year for MacPherson
A junior on the Rams boys' soccer team, MacPherson has 37 goals after netting yet another in a 3-2 loss at Campbell of Litchfield on Wednesday.
The Rams are 11-3-0 and among the top teams in Division III. Raymond head coach Dave Elliot said he has conversations with MacPherson often to be sure he remains humble, but also enjoys this year.
"It's a dream season for him and he deserves whatever recognition comes his way at the end of the season," Elliot said. "But for right now, it's about the team."
"Playing at that level has increased my knowledge of the game as well as my technical ability," MacPherson said. "It helps to be surrounded by players that are like me and so passionate about the game and they love playing soccer and they helped me build to a level beyond anything else to this point."
For now, that next goal is all he's thinking about.
"Scoring is the most beautiful feeling I've ever felt in my life and soccer is my life," he said. "It means everything to me."The big 5-0: Raymond will honor it's 1963 state championship boys' soccer team with a 50th anniversary event at 6 p.m. following next Thursday's game against Campbell.
