Sports360AZ All-Academic Boys Soccer Team (1A-4A)

For eight years, Sport360AZ has been committed to acknowledging the best and brightest student athletes in Arizona. We are excited to introduce the Sports360AZ All-Academic Winter Sports Teams brought to you by Venezia’s Pizzeria and IBEW Local 640 to recognize excellence of student-athletes not only on the field but in the classroom as well.

We were overwhelmed by the response from players, coaches, athletic directors and parents and their nominations. This is the largest Sports360AZ All-Academic Winter Team in this recognition’s history. Submissions surpassed last year’s total by over 500 nominations. Thank you for recognizing these incredible student-athletes!

A few notes on how the team was compiled: 

Sports360AZ reached out to every athletic director in the state, as well as every varsity head coach for the above sports requesting nominations based on performance in the classroom. We also opened up nominations to parents and players as well. This is the only way to be named to the all-academic team. Thank you to the high school community for recognizing these student-athletes!

IBEW Local 640 was chartered in 1925 to provide the best-qualified Electricians to our signatory Contractors and provide livable wages, health and retirement benefits for our members. In Arizona, the IBEW is the only organization that certifies the skills and knowledge of a Journeyman Wireman, and then backs that certification with a guarantee to the employers who hire them. Our Contractors and Members have done extensive work at Arizona’s largest schools and universities, including large solar installations, and have been involved in most of the major sports stadiums/arenas in the Phoenix Metro area. As new green technologies are incorporated into the nation’s power grid, Local 640 leads the way in our ability to train and provide qualified manpower for solar and wind installations in the quantities that will be required to complete these projects. 

Thank you so much for your nominations, and be sure to use #Sports360AZScholars when sharing these teams on social media.
