Some of the high school sports seasons are underway and HockomockSports.com
has published their preview of the girls soccer "players to watch" for the Hockomock League.
We share the spotlight on FHS senior Erin Quaile and provide the link to the full
Erin Quaile, Senior – Franklin
Much of Franklin’s success last season came from its defense being one of the best in the Hock and that solidity at the back came from far more than just the back four. The Panthers were also a tenacious team in the midfield, putting pressure and forcing turnovers all over the field and that is where senior midfielder Erin Quaile dominates.
Not surprising for a two-time HockomockSports.com Defensive Player of the Year in basketball, Quaile is quick, agile, and never backs down from a challenge. She covers a ton of ground in the center of the pitch and is not afraid of getting into physical battles. Quaile also showed off a good range of passing, keeping possession well when needed and quickly turning defense into attack with a long pass to the forwards. She may not be the biggest player, but Quaile was also strong on set pieces on both ends of the pitch and timed her late runs into the box to pop up with the occasional goal for the Panthers.
Franklin will be in the mix for the league title this year and Quaile’s experience and nous in the middle of the park will be critical.
