Sports Spotlight - Mason Stotz
A week ago today, the Bismarck boys soccer team won the state championship.
In This week's Sports Spotllight, I shed more light on the busy schedule of one of the Demons captain's, Mason Stotz.
Senior Year of high school is always a special time and for BHS senior soccer standout Mason Stotz he's leaving the Soccer field as a State Champ.
"It means a lot just senior year to know that and remember that we will always be the State Champs," said Stotz.
Last week was a unique experience for Stotz as the State Soccer Tournament was moved to a Monday through Wednesday set up leaving him with a lot of things to make up on.
"I have a lot of homework to catch up on but this was a once in a life time experience," said Stotz.
Not only is Stotz a talent on the soccer field you can see him sending kicks through the uprights on the football field for the Demons leaving not a lot of free time in his schedule.
"I have been super busy I mean I have missed a couple of football games here and there for soccer there wasn't much of a mix up of games they were pretty evenly spread out but I was always missing practices for football and I feel bad for the football guys because I wasn't there for them sometimes but it was just tough being a captain on the soccer team while also playing football," said Stotz.
While Stotz has been focused on the Soccer Pitch his soccer teammates also support him on the Gridiron.
"Yeah we support him on the football team as well he gets the job done in both places and he is just a great athlete and it's good for him," said Easton Ford, Demons senior goalkeeper,
For Demons Soccer coach Andy Foss coaching Mason is as easy as him finding the back of the net.
BHS Head Soccer Coach Andy Foss said: "It's basically you give him a pointer here or there and you let him do his thing because he knows the game so well. He understands the game so well and he understands what's happening throughout the course of the game. So, you just let him do his thing and let him be a leader and let him be a Senior for this group and I think it kind of showed up in how he kind of lead these guys."
So whether its through the uprights or into the old onion bag you can expect Mason Stotz to keep on Kicking.
Mason's young brother Ethan is also on the both the soccer and football team's. Both will join B.H.S. on Friday night as they take on number one ranked Century in the final football game of the regular season.
