Boys Soccer: Cincire credits confidence for recent success

Hub forward stirving for better communication this fall


More confidence and aggression created more scoring chances for Rochelle Township High School forward Juan Cincire. The rising senior will be looking to continue that trend this fall, when the Hubs take the field with Cincire as a projected starter on the front line.

A key reserve at the forward position over the last three varsity seasons, Cincire scored three goals and added three assists during the 2019 campaign, helping the Hubs to a 13-8 record. With the 2020 season approaching, Cincire said communication will be critical for he and his teammates to follow last season’s success with another winning record.

“I thought we performed well last year, but I definitely have confidence that we can be just as good, if not better this coming season,” Cincire said. “I think my communication with the team has been good on and off the field, but I’d like for us to improve our communication as a team so we can move the ball more quickly. I thought I played with more confidence than ever.”

Cincire is one of several Hubs returning this fall who are not only entering their senior seasons, but their fourth seasons on the varsity team. With that level of experience, particularly at the forward and midfield positions, Cincire said he and his teammates are motivated to finish their high school careers strong.

“I felt that we did well in moving the ball and creating space on the field last year,” Cincire said. “I feel like I could better myself on and off the ball with my movement and creating opportunities for my teammates. I want to finish strong, and I plan to continue working hard for this season and giving my absolute best for my coaches and teammates.”
