“We have a really good team this year,” Yadav said. “We worked really well together. We’re solid everywhere. There are really no weak spots.”
“He is a shy leader but he does step up when he needs to,” Eagle’s Landing boys coach Justin Brantley said.
The Golden Eagles clinched the No. 2 seed in Region 4-AAAA with a 6-1 victory over North Clayton on Monday.
Yadav has been playing varsity all four years and Brantley described the center midfielder as a team-first player.
“He’s very technical with the ball,” Brantley said. “He has played for a long time so he understands what he needs to do with the ball. He makes a lot of great runs off the ball and then just looks for the other players. He likes to be an assist person before scoring.”
Next year, Yadav, who has a 3.8 grade-point average, plans to take his skill set to Germany, where he will also begin his education in medicine. He spent time there in 2010.
“Amit is a phenomenal athlete as well as a great student,” Brantley said.
