Mike Mcgovern At Home In The Middle Of The Eastchester Soccer Field

As center mid fielder, senior Mike Mcgovern doesn't get a lot of goals or get credit for big stops deep in the defensive end. On the other hand, he likes the way his position melds as both a starting and ending point of much of the action.

“I break down the play on defense and feed to the forwards for assists,” he says.
Getting the nod as team captain last year, he inspires dedication and effort in his actions. “I try to push them as hard as I push myself,” he says.

Nonetheless, it won’t be easy after losing eight seniors

to graduation, but team chemistry will not be an issue. “We’re always together on and off the field so we have a real good team bond,” he says.
Coach Alfio Carabotta also plays a crucial role in keeping them together and focused. Working us hard, he says, “If we’re going through the motions, he gets us to actually do it and like doing
it,” he says.

Of course, soccer plays second string to football in any school when it comes to attention. “It’s always frustrating – that’s just the way it is,” he says, but the players on the fall teams definitely have each other’s backs.

Both teams show support as fans and respect each other on and off the field, he says. The encouragement coming from the football team after soccer’s first round sectional loss was also appreciated, he adds.
School spirit setting the tone, hopefully Eastchester is rewarded this year with congratulations all around.
