Canandaigua Academy has emerged as a New York power the last decade.
The Braves, who won the 2009 Class B state title, should be in contention once again this coming season.
One of the main reasons coach Ed Mulheron’s Canadaigua squad will once again be a force in Section 5 is the return of Joe Eddinger.
The senior defender, who has committed to the University at Albany, is a technically sound position defender who has a knack for getting groundballs.
Now, here are Joe’s perspectives on the upcoming season.
What have you been doing to get ready for the season?
As a team, we have been having some Sunday morning skills where we do stick drills and some shooting. Also, as a team we have been playing scrimmaging different teams at TSC (Total Sports Experience outside Rochester).
How does your schedule look, what games are you looking forward to most, and who are some of your scrimmages against?
Our schedule this year looks good. We have some good competition as always and we are looking forward to it. We as a team are looking forward to every game there’s really no game that we aren’t looking forward too.
What players on your team do you think will surprise some people this year?
I think all of our players this year will surprise a lot of people. We are coming back stronger then last year. But the one player that will surprise people would be Luke MacNeil. He’s a junior goalie who has a lot of talent and defiantly can be the foundation of our strong team this year.
What do you think the strength of your team will be this year?
I think the strength of our team will be our offense. We have a lot of good midfielders and attackmen that proved themselves last year and should have another big year for us.
How do you view the race in your league and who do you think some of the contending teams will be?
I think the race for the league is wide open. There is a lot of good competition and anyone can beat anyone on any given day. This should be a fun competitive season and I’m looking forward to it.
