Senior midfielder


The Tigers have been getting balanced scoring, which makes them dangerous, but leading the charge has been Kadon Black.

The Orem senior notched a pair of key goals last week, getting the first in a 3-0 win over rival Timpanogos and then getting the second in a tough 3-2 win against Spanish Fork.

Black has already tallied four goals for the Tigers in 2019 and will be a player opposing defenses will have to keep track of throughout the season.
