Marble Falls High School’s soccer season is currently in offseason while school’s out, but Christian Ammons is still making waves on the field.

The senior-to-be forward at MFHS recently participated in a soccer camp at Southern Methodist University, along with 300 high school soccer players from across the state.

“It was beautiful, a good experience,” Ammons said of his time in Dallas.

The soccer players worked on drills and played several games during the four-day camp before the top 22 were selected for an all-star game.

Ammons, a two-time All-State soccer player for the Mustangs, was one chosen.

He scored both his team’s goals in the game as his team won, 2-0.

“In the all-star game, everybody as good and on the same level,” he said.

MFHS soccer coach Rick Hoover described Ammons as “probably the best player at the camp.”
