Senior and Oak Park Boys’ varsity soccer player Wesley Harris is the Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 28.

Harris began playing soccer since he was four-years-old, and played for the Agoura Youth Soccer Association (AYSO), as well as on the Oak Park High School team for four years.

While Harris believes there are certain advantages of club soccer, he prefers playing at school.

“Club soccer is definitely more organized, but in high school there’s a different environment that you play in because your with a lot of your friends in school, and it gives you this great chemistry with your teammates,” Harris said.

Harris believes he was awarded Athlete of the Week because of his performance on the Jan. 16 game against Moorpark. Wesley believes that a person must work very hard to be successful.

“For me, to score three goals, you have to be at the right place at the right time,” Harris said. “You have to work at it, practice, get some work in. I feel like that’s key, because some people are kind of lazy, and they just do what they do at practice.”

According to Harris, if you love what you do, you will be successful.

“I love soccer. I play soccer in my freetime because it’s who I am,” Harris said. “Just put work at it, and be in the right place at the right time, and do something.”

Harris is excited for this opportunity.

“I’m honored to be Athlete of the Week,” Harris said.
