      SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Jay Lavesque is a sophomore, dual-sport athlete at Thurston High School.

      When he's not kicking for the football team, he's scoring game-winning goals for the soccer team. Even while playing two sports, he maintains a 4.0 gpa and serves as an outstanding role model in the Thurston high school community.

      In the offseason, he also plays club soccer for Eugene Metro, a traveling all-star team that participates in various tournaments across the west coast.

      He hopes to play soccer at the collegiate level one day but in the meantime he's focused on school and says his goal is to graduate with a 4.0.
