“We graduated our other striker, he was a senior last year, and then this year it has been kind of my job to score goals,” Vieira said.
Vieira, a four-year varsity starter, is looking at Williams College as a possible school to play at next year. Williams is his top choice and he is applying there early decision.
Vieria wants to study biochemistry. Right now, he is taking AP biology and government.
He helped Brooks advance to the N.E. Prep B title game last year.
“Every year we try to win the league and right now we’re in second,” he said. “We lost to Rivers (1-0). But if they slip up, we’re planning on winning the next (four) games and hopefully, win the league and then in the tournament. I think we’re going to go Class B again and we’re going to try to win the Class B tournament.”
