Rosewood recently wrapped up a historic season on the soccer pitch, and Aaron Zamora was a big part of the Eagles’ success.
The sophomore scored a team-high 31 goals and dished out 11 assists. Rosewood finished the season with a 21-1-2 overall record, won a conference title for the first time in 19 years, and reached the regional championship round for the first time in school history.
Zamora said a big part of the Eagles’ success is their team chemistry and close bond on and off the field.
“This isn’t just a team. We’re a family, and we’re brothers, and I feel like that makes us plat better,” Zamora said. “We’re just a family, and it helped us win.”
Zamora scored plenty of big goals this season, but his biggest came in the fourth round of the playoffs against North Moore.
Rosewood and North Moore went back and forth for over 100 minutes, and in the 103rd minute of the game, Zamora scored the game-winning goal to give the Eagles the 1-0 win.
“It’s crazy that me, my brothers, my family won in the last second,” Zamora said. “I saw the ball get loose, and I just kicked it in.”
The Eagles are losing three seniors to graduation, but with most of the roster, including Zamora, returning, the Eagles have a great chance to make even more history next season.
