Andrew Felder, a 17-year-old Encino native, is our first Athlete of the Week. Felder has excelled on and off the field, according to Maccabi Games coach Kobi Goren.
A soccer starter for the Harvard-Westlake Wolverines, Felder made team captain as a junior. He is also a sweeper-fullback for the West Valley Samba Club soccer team and was captain of the Maccabi Youth soccer team in 1999 and 2000, winning gold medals each of those years.
His accolades this week include three goals on Monday night in Harvard-Westlake's defeat of rival Alemany High School and a total of five goals in the four league games this year. Beyond Felder's super soccer ability, he maintains a 3.3 GPA in school.
Felder says he wants to play at the college level -- so keep an eye out for this super athlete.
