Hillcrest senior Nick Foss has been named to the 2018 Minnesota State High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State team.

Foss is a captain for the Comets and a three-year starter at the center D back position (stopper).

"Nick has tremendous work ethic and leads by example on and off the field," said Hillcrest Head Coach Rod Jensen.  "He is hard-nosed and never shies away from heading the ball forward on opponent's goal kicks and punts, no matter the temp.  He has excellent defensive skills, but, he is also very effective in taking the ball up the middle of the field, overlapping the mids, and assisting our offensive attacks.  He is a threat to opposing teams on corner kicks, scoring many goals with headers."

Foss has also kicked for the football team the past two years and plays varsity basketball and baseball.  Scholastically he carries a 3.4+ GPA while being involved in many activities.  He is a three-year all-conference selection and a two-year MVP.
