When Ramona High School’s boys soccer team defeated Oceanside on Feb. 5, Alex Medina had two of Ramona’s four goals and an assist on one of the other goals. Medina added his 22nd goal of the season Feb. 7 at Valley Center.

“He’s been the most prolific scorer in the Valley League. He scored against every team,” said coach Michael Jordan. “He’s, I believe the only one.”

For his scoring stats, Medina is this week’s Ramona Sentinel Athlete of the Week.

During the first round of league play Oceanside held Medina scoreless, but he was able to figure out the Pirates in the rematch.

Medina is a sophomore this year. He was not part of Ramona’s program as a freshman but made the varsity in his first year with the Bulldogs. Medina plays the striker position for Ramona.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve had a striker,” Jordan said.

Many of Medina’s goals have come on effort. If they happened because he was in the right position, that was due to how he positioned himself for a pass or a follow-up after a blocked shot.

“He’s such a hard worker,” Jordan said.

Even when Medina loses a ball, the defenders have learned that Medina can do more than shoot.

“He’s going to run to get it back,” said Jordan.
