Three area high school players receive national preseason honors

Henderson duo and Salesianum goalkeeper honored



Henderson High School senior defender Maxwell Zandi and Salesianum School senior goalkeeper Gavin Campbell were named to the 2016 American Family Insurance ALL-USA Preseason Boys Soccer Team, announced on Thursday by USA Today.

Henderson senior midfielder and Notre Dame commit Aiden McFadden was an honorable mention on the team, selected out of schools that compete during the fall season.

Zandi, the younger brother of Villanova midfielder and Philadelphia Union Academy grad Zachary Zandi, is verbally committed to join his brother on the Wildcats next fall.

The 6-foot-0 defender is one of eight returning starters for the West Chester school, which made it to the Pennsylvania Class AAA state quarterfinals after recording shutouts in 14 of 24 games a year ago.

Campbell allowed just three goals all last season against in-state opponents while helping guide the Sallies to the Delaware Division 1 state title for the sixth straight year. The 6-foot-2 net minder who is undecided in his college commitment, registered a dozen clean sheets while only conceding six goals all season.
