This week’s Bullet Shot Athlete of the Week honor goes to men’s soccer player junior Henry Smith. Smith currently leads the soccer team in points (17) and assists (11) and remains second in goals to sophomore Patrick Santini with six goals. Smith has started all 13 games for the Bullets and recently tied a school record with three assists in the game against Haverford.

Smith remains a key asset to the Bullets week after week. From midfield, Smith has propelled the team to an impressive overall record of 8-4-1 and 2-4-0 in the Centennial Conference.

He is extremely strong with the ball at his feet as he is able to beat defenders and maintain possession. His knack for finding the open man has led the Bullets to many pivotal goals.

So far Smith has notched at least one point in all but three matches this season and has several multipoint games under his belt.

This week Smith has shown his skills yet again as he scored the Bullets only goal in a tough match against Dickinson just 10 minutes into the game.

 

After a tough few games against Swarthmore and Dickinson, Smith and the squad will look to get back on track as Centennial Conference play winds down.
