Athlete of the Week – April 17: Sukrija Dudic

Hermitage High School, soccer
Sukrija Dudic, forward for the Hermitage varsity boys' soccer team, is determined to rebrand the Panthers' image. While Deep Run and Freeman have historically been more successful at soccer, Dudic has spent four years working to change the perception of Hermitage.

“I always tell my teammates, ‘We’re not the Hermitage that sucks,’” he said. “Other teams can’t stomp all over us. We’re here to fight and to win.”

Last year the seventh-seeded Panthers upset Lee Davis in the first round of the playoffs, and Dudic said that was a pivotal moment for the squad.

“I think Lee Davis viewed us as an easy win,” he said. “That game was a turning point. They realized that we don’t joke around. We just ended their season.” > Read more.
