5A state champions honored by national MaxPreps program

The Arapahoe High School boys soccer team received an honor from the MaxPreps Tour of Champions during a halftime ceremony on Jan. 30.

The national ranking trophy was presented by the Army National Guard. To qualify, a team must be ranked highly by MaxPreps nationally and win a state championship, according to a news release. In the fall, Arapahoe finished the 2018 season No. 28 in MaxPreps’ nationwide standings.

Arapahoe bested Grandview High School to claim the Warriors’ sixth CHSAA 5A state title. The team is one of 10 boys soccer teams being honored on the 14th annual Tour of Champions.

Cameron Gail, a senior who played varsity since sophomore year, said the majority of his teammates have been playing together most of their lives.

“We all know each other inside and out — that definitely helped,” said Gail, who added that the teammates hang out off the field often. “We were always playing for each other. We always had each other’s back, no matter what.”

Personnel from the Colorado Army National Guard presented head coach Mark Hampshire and the team with the Tour of Champions accolade at an Arapahoe boys varsity basketball game’s halftime.

Spencer Cobb, Zander Hahn and Gail have been recognized as First-Team All-State players, the release said. Gail, specifically, was also named All-Colorado Player of the Year and United Soccer Coaches Association All-American.
