Fletcher Daniel, son of Amy and Brown Daniel, is a senior at Battle Ground Academy and this week’s Athlete of the Week.
He is a member of the Varsity Boys Soccer Team and plays the position of right back. He has had four assists this season.
Daniel said he was inspired to start playing after watching the US Men’s National Team play Algeria in the 2010 World Cup.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “I try to maximize my potential so I can help my team win. The ultimate goal is always a state championship trophy.”
He said that his biggest role models are his brother and sister. “They have really paved the way for me both athletically and academically,” he said. “They show the hard work it takes to be successful and how to handle adversity.”
As far as the future, Daniel said he has several paths to choose from. He is currently deciding between The University of Washington, Lee University and Vanderbilt University.
