Atascadero senior Wyatt Hasch is the Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press Boys North County Soccer Player of the Year for his versatility with the Hounds playing excellent defense while also providing an offensive spark when needed. Hasch came highly recommended by multiple coaches in the North County and helped lead the Greyhounds to a 10-12-2 overall record but more importantly an 8-4 record in the Ocean League and the Hounds second consecutive second place finish.
Playing primarily in the back half of the field, Hasch was still able to score six goals in his senior season which ranked him third overall on the team. The senior was also one of Atascadero’s top distributors with three assists on the year, which also placed him third on the team. However, his main responsibility often came in stopping the opposing team’s top offensive weapon and accepted the challenge every night. The Hounds proved that they could play with any team this season when they put it together and that was never more evident than when they tied Clovis North who lost to the eventual CIF Champions in the Division 1 semifinals. Atascadero tied 3-3 and Hasch recorded one of the Hounds three goals. Hasch is also a top track athlete and was hoping to make it to the State meet in his senior season.
