Goddard’s Brian Aleman – Athlete Of The Month Presented By Visit Salina

By Hayden Swope

Brian Aleman, a soccer player at Goddard, was chosen as the Visit Salina/Salina Chamber Athlete of the Month. Last season, Aleman was named a first team all-league athlete. 

“I feel very honored to be chosen for the magazine,” Aleman said. “There is a lot of talent at every school so to be chosen feels very special.”

This year, Aleman focused on making every second on the field count, and worked to improve his leadership for his team. 

“I prepared for this season with the mindset that this is my last year to win something for our school,” Aleman said. “I don’t get my high school years back so I just want to make the most of it. Something I wanted to improve this season was my leadership. I wanted to be a role model and lead by example for our underclassmen.”

Aleman’s biggest postseason goal is to make it as far as possible, all while playing together as a team one last time. 

“Some goals for this season were to make it deep into the postseason and ultimately first win regionals and go on from there,” Aleman said. “As a team, I would like to be able to play together more.”  

Aleman hopes to continue playing soccer after high school all while going to school. 

“I would love to play college soccer somewhere, and although undecided on where, I would like to major in business,” Aleman said.
