Griffin Price just changed everything. The Mr. Soccer Award is the most prestigious honor for any high school soccer player in the state of Minnesota. No one from HHS has ever been a recipient of this honor or even nominated at all.

Price is a senior at HHS who has been playing soccer for as long as he can remember. He has dreamed of being Minnesota’s Mr. Soccer since he stepped foot on the pitch for the very first time. 

“It’s truly so awesome to look back at all of the hard work, time, and effort I have put in and see it finally paying off. I have seen people in the past be nominated for this award, and I knew then that this was something I really wanted and was going to work for it. “I am forever grateful.” Said Griffin Price,12. 

The HHS Boys’ Soccer team went into this season with high expectations and hopes of going to the state tournament. Although falling short of the state tournament, the boys did have a very successful run. While being led by Price, The team finished with a 7-3-7 record and recorded 51 goals and 43 assists. Price finished his senior season with 17 goals and 10 assists.  

Price is a phenomenal player but what his coaches and teammates love the most is his ability to lead on and off the pitch. He is always striving to help others improve their game and is the ultimate teammate when it comes to building someone’s spirits up.

“It’s been so cool to play with Griffin, he is someone I look up to so much and I learn so much while competing with him. He’s a great leader, A natural playmaker, and an all-around great guy” Said Isaac Sanders,11. 

After graduating from HHS in the upcoming spring, Price plans to go overseas and continue chasing his dreams of playing soccer at the highest level, and he has the support of the whole HHS community with him as he goes on his journey. Although Price will be gone next season, the HHS boys’ soccer team is hopeful to make an even deeper run next year. Price has set the stage for many young soccer players at Hopkins.
