St. Xavier Senior Goalkeeper O’Toole Named League Player Of Year

The Greater Catholic League South Division is pleased to announce its all-star soccer team for the 2020 season. Members of this prestigious team, along with winners of the special awards, were voted on by league coaches at a special meeting held at the conclusion of the regular season.

St. Xavier senior goalkeeper Briggs O’Toole, who capped his varsity career by in helping the Bombers post an 11-2-2 record during the regular season by outscoring their opposition, 43-13, and limiting teams to an average of less than one goal per match,  is the GCL South Player of the Year.  Including the postseason, O’Toole finished his senior season with 8.5 shutouts in helping the St. Xavier defense allow just five goals in six matches during the state playoffs.    League coaches were quick to acknowledge the season by O’Toole, who continually made big saves in critical points of matches to help St. Xavier make its longest run in the postseason since 2005.

St. Xavier coach Brian Schaeper, whose team earned the No. 2 seed in the Southwest District bracket of the Ohio High School Athletic Association State Boys’ Soccer Tournament, is the Coach of the Year.  The Bombers were ranked all season in the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association Division I state poll, working their way to as high as No. 3 in the statewide rankings, won the GCL South Division championship outright with a record of 5-0-1, and won its fourth straight district title.  The Bombers advanced to the DI state semifinals where they lost to New Albany, 2-1, on Wednesday night.  St. Xavier finished with a 16-3-2 overall record against a difficult schedule.
