Ballboy to Rotation Player

By: Jaydon Barile/ Junior Writer

The Blue Ridge soccer team is having a rough start to their season this year with a 1-3 record, so far; but one glimmer of hope is the addition of team member Logan Sellitto.

Sellitto spent all last season as a ball boy for the soccer team. This year, though, team membership numbers were down, giving him the opportunity to become a full-fledged team member. 

Sellitto, also known as “Pickle,” first started playing soccer when he was about five years old. 

Logan’s Success

When asked what work he put into preparing for the season, Sellitto said: “I put in intense conditioning this offseason to make sure I was in shape and ready to play my best.”

He plans to continue that dedication to getting in shape and says: ” I attend daily practice and condition on my own time.”

Julie Sellitto, Logan’s mother, was asked to share her thoughts on the rise of her son’s role on the team and said: “It is very busy but rewarding when I see my son succeed, there has been a lot of improvement in Logan’s footwork.” 

Carli Thornton, one of the team’s managers, says, “Logan played very well against Mid Valley. It was pretty impressive.”

Logan’s teammate, BR Freshman Ethan Wright said, “Pickle’s improvement is noticeable.”

It’s clear Logan puts in hard work everyday to try to be his best. This seems to be paying off with the playing time he’s earned.
