Case Montanile Named Gatorade Soccer Player of the Year for Arizona

Francesco "Case" Montanile '20, who led Brophy to a Division I state soccer championship this year, has been named Gatorade Player of the Year for Arizona. Montanile had a busy spring with the state championship in February, 6A Conference Player of the Year honors in March, and Arizona All-Academic team honors in April.

As a junior, he was named Arizona Player of the Year at the AZCentral Sports Awards last spring and was selected to play in the Allstate All-America Cup last summer. In November, AZCentral featured him in a story about his loyalty to Brophy over club soccer, and that same month he signed to play college soccer at the University of California, Irvine.

2020 marks the third consecutive year that a Brophy soccer player was named Gatorade Player of the Year. Deric Hall '19 received the honor in 2019 and Carter Clemmensen '18 in 2018. Montanile is the ninth Brophy soccer player to receive the award.
