Boys soccer player of the year

Name: Ben Stuart 

School: Salpointe Catholic 

Year in school: Senior 

Sport: Boys soccer 

From the archives: Stuart stood head and shoulders above the rest of Southern Arizona’s soccer elite, literally. The 6-foot-2-inch senior was almost always around the net when a scoring chance was there for Salpointe, and he cashed in for 24 goals and 16 assists in 26 games.

Stuart scored the Lancers’ only goal in a 2-1 loss to Glendale Ironwood in the state championship game. He is headed to the University of San Francisco on a soccer scholarship. — Star staff, 2000
