Osornio, Albarran named Marble Falls soccer teams’ MVPs
MARBLE FALLS — Danny Osornio and Krystal Albarran were named the most valuable players of the Marble Falls High School varsity soccer teams.
Coaches announced the selections during the programs’ awards ceremonies May 13.
First-year Lady Mustangs head coach Trey Young, who was the varsity boys assistant coach last season, described the differences between coaching boys and girls.
“Girls hug more and they definitely smell better, except for their socks,” he said to laughter. “Girls cry when they’re sad, girls cry when they’re happy, girls cry for no reason. It’s things like that that make this profession fantastic.”
Mustangs head coach Michael Nave said he has a number of people who tell him they’d rather not attend a game because soccer season is in the winter. His response was that he and his players are practicing in the elements all the time in addition to playing in outdoor games.
“To have the passion to do this sport and represent this school says a lot,” he said. “They gave their best effort every time. There’s nothing else you can do.”
