Player of the Week: CJ Ferguson

CJ Ferguson

When first-year Lake Region varsity boys’ soccer coach Ryan Harlow was asked to describe his goalie, he simply said, “CJ Ferguson is a special player.”

“I had the opportunity to work with him last season, which made the transition easier for me this season. CJ was named captain the last two season because of his influence on and off the field,” Coach Harlow said. “He worked really hard over summer and preseason to improve his game, which showed this season. He nearly cut his goals against in half this season, that lead us to be more competitive this season.”

CJ hopes to continue playing soccer at the next level next fall, and the Laker coaching staff wishes him the best of luck!

In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, CJ is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing. Recipients receive a specially-designed t-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber.
