Former Excelsior Eagle footballer, Christina Salmon, has kicked off her college career in impressive fashion in earning Player of the Week honors at Hill College in Texas.
The freshman earned the award as the Region V Division I Women’s Soccer Player of the Week on the back of her impressive goal-scoring prowess.
In just two games, Christina netted five goals, including a hat trick in a win over Paris Junior College to earn the coveted award for the week of September 16-25.
She is continuing where she left off at Excelsior, where she was the girls’ football team’s goal-scoring spark as the team won four consecutive championships under Coach Xavier Gilbert.
In the 2019 championship season, Christina netted 59 goals in 15 games in the ISSA School Girls competition to become the leading goal scorer.
She later copped three individual awards from ISSA for her exploits in leading Excelsior to the 2019 title. She copped the Top Goal-Scorer award with 59 goals, Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the entire season, and MVP in the final against Denham Town.
Kudos to Excelsior Lady Eagle Christina Salmon!
