This month's Trail Blazer in the Spotlight is Alex Reyes.  Alex is a returning sophomore and team captain for the 2017 MCC-Blue River soccer team. He not only excels in school, but demonstrates exceptional leadership ability.  Alex started in 17 of 18 games during his freshman season.  His primary position is defensive midfielder, where he is tasked with shielding the defensive line and helping to maintain possession once the soccer ball is retained.  

Alex is a resident of Sparks, Nevada and graduate of Reed High School.  While at Reed, he earned First Team All-Region Honors and was voted the team's MVP his senior season.  In addition to his high school career, Alex played club soccer for Omega Select, helping his team to a Midwest Regional Championship.  

Alex is working towards an Associate of Arts in Science and plans to earn an undergraduate degree in biology.  His long term goal is to become a physical therapist. With his hard work ethic on the field and in the classroom, there is little doubt Alex will achieve his goals!
