Why Warner was selected: Warner has scored two goals in each of Burlington Central's last four matches.
Burlington Central senior forward Bryce Warner has been on a serious roll lately, tallying two goals in each of Central's last four matches. His favorite goal during the scoring binge was a 25-yard strike against Rockford Jefferson that whistled into the upper-corner of the net. Warner, the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, touched base with sports editor Jay Schwab on his scoring prowess. The following is an edited transcript:
Two goals apiece in four straight games – how's that for consistency?
I started a little slow [this season] and then it just took one game I guess, and it just kept rolling from there.
Is there anything different you've been doing?
As a team, we've been setting individual goals and I have achieved mine and most of the kids on the team are achieving theirs. Before each game, we have specific, individual goals and when that's been happening, we've been winning games, and it just happens to be me scoring goals.
What's your toughest class in school this semester?
I would have to say probably trigonometry. No, college preparatory English.
Favorite sports movie?
I'd say "Goal! The Dream Begins."
