Franklin senior Nitin Chaudhury continued to be one of the most consistently good players on the pitch during the 2018 season. Not a flashy player or one for a lot of stats, Chaudhury does all of the small things right that can often go unnoticed. His work ethic was contagious and spread throughout the team, helping the Panthers record double-digit wins this season. “He’s an outstanding athlete, great leader, and the hardest worker on our team,” said Franklin coach Fran Bositis. “He set the tone for everyone else to follow.”
Franklin junior Sam Stowell was a rock in the back for the Panthers during the 2018 season. Stowell is one of the more experienced defenders in the league despite being just a junior. The Panthers had one of the top defensive teams in the league, allowing just 20 goals this year, with Stowell in the heart of that group. Stowell was a big reason Franklin went 7-1-1 in its final nine games. “Sam is an excellent defender who was the leader of our defense and one of the primary reasons we were able to turn things around the second half of the season,” said Franklin coach Fran Bositis.
