Biggest Sports Thrill: "Frustrating first place teams, like we did to Sky View. We were having fun because we were frustrating the first place team which isn't used to losing. It caused us to gain confidence and them to lose confidence."
Best advice I've ever received: "When you start something, don't quit until you finish."
Last week's accomplishments: Loftus scored the game's lone goal as Fremont (8-3 Region 1, 11-4-1 overall) handed Sky View its lone league defeat with a 1-0 shutout on Thursday.
Loftus on their performance: "Last year we were all scared to play together. We felt a lot of pressure playing varsity (as underclassmen). This year as all seniors and juniors, we're confident (and have the experience of playing) comp soccer together. After last year's season (when Fremont missed the playoffs) we were super mad. This year we came out in our first game against Layton (a 2-1 win) with a chip on our shoulder, because they beat us 4-0 (last year), and it's pretty much carried through the season. (Against Sky View) I was honestly in the right place at the right time. I was standing right by the back post and redirected the ball into the goal. That win was extremely huge for our team because when we go to state we'll be playing teams like that every game. Honestly, I feel like we have a really good chance of going all the way."
Coach Fred Smith on Loftus: "Brody is a great player who just works hard. If he loses the ball, he works to get it back. He's (also) strong on the attack. He never complains and plays even while hurt. When he's in there you know you're getting 100 percent effort all the time."
After High School: "I'm going to keep working through the summer. Then I'll go to Weber State for two years (to study) design engineering and technology. After that I'll go to Utah State to study architecture and construction."
