Athlete of the month: Guy Lavi


Tabitha Mendez

After watching games with his dad, uncle and older brother, senior and defender Guy Lavi started playing soccer at age six. Since then, he has had a 13-year career but is still uncertain whether or not he will play in college. Lavi has been playing on the MVHS boys soccer team since he was a freshman, and became a part of the boys varsity team when he was a sophomore. This year, Lavi is one of three captains for the team and sees potential in the upcoming season as he believes all of the players are more willing to work hard, which he hopes will change previous season records for the better. For Lavi, when looking at the essential parts of soccer, he sees value and importance as two different things. “For me those two are very different,” Lavi said. “I value the friendships and memories I’ve created but I think the most important thing to succeed is hard work and dedication.”
