Boys prep soccer: Metro-area players to watch, 2019

Gabriel Legendre, sr., F, Cleveland: If New Mexico has a gold standard player in 2019, Legendre is he. Already has five goals in two games.

David Hite, sr., F, Rio Rancho: A consistent scorer who should be among the top goal scorers in 5A.

Will Maclay, sr., F/MF, Sandia: Returning to Sandia after spending 2018 at an out-of-state academy. Dangerous.

Nick Legendre, soph., F, Cleveland: Gabriel’s brother is a threat, too, having reached double figures in goals in ’18.

Marcus Garcia, jr., F, St. Pius: Scored 19 goals for the top-seeded Sartans last year.

Bryan Tarango, sr., MF, Los Lunas: One of the Tigers’ best overall players, he led his team in goals in 2018.

Josh Baros, jr., MF, Valley: A big player, his coach said, with Division I potential.

Evan Kowalski, soph., GK, Volcano Vista: With the Hawks looking to find scoring, Kowalski’s performance should be crucial.

Miguel Pedroza, sr., GK, Atrisco Heritage: A veteran keeper can be an important commodity late in a season.

Nich Duran, sr., D, Sandia Prep: He’s going to have to be a steadying force on the back line, where the Sundevils are rebuilding.
