Fleetwood's standout defender Nate Herb

Nate Herb is the anchor of Fleetwood's defense.  The senior provided a spark on offense in the District 3-2A championship against Camp Hill.  Just four minutes into the game, Herb used his head to put home a rebound of Justin Hartline's shot.  "Coach [Schlegel] says the scrappy goals are just as good as the great ones...Being a defender, any time you can help the team on the scoreboard is a great thing," Herb told SV Sports' Paul Roberts.  The top-seeded Tigers cruised past the second-seeded Lions 5-1 on Saturday at Cumberland Valley.  Fleetwood jumped all over Camp Hill with four goals in the first half.  Junior forward Davin Millisock scored off a brilliant free kick seven minutes into the contest.  Millisock has a team-high 22 goals this year.  "He's a phenomenal player, best player I've ever played with. The way he moves with the ball is unlike any other person, and he's gonna be dangerous next year," stated Herb.  Millisock is a two-time All-State selection.  Herb picked up an assist on William Maurek's goal with ten minutes remaining in the first half.  Josh Avila made it 4-0 six minutes before the break.  Owen Bice's long range blast completed the scoring with eleven minutes to go.  The (22-1) Tigers claimed their 15th District 3 title.  They won their 23rd Berks County championship last month.  "It starts with the coaches. [Our] coaches really do build a great culture with us, constantly team bonding. A close-knit team leads to more championships," noted Herb.  The two-time All-County pick also plays basketball at Fleetwood.  He averaged nine points last season and helped the (22-5) Tigers reach the District 3-4A final at the Giant Center.  Fleetwood opens the state soccer playoffs at home on Tuesday night versus Masterman from Philadelphia.  The Tigers are searching for their fifth PIAA crown.  "I think we can go all the way. The sky's the limit for this team," said Herb.
