Winfield’s Emily Hudson is girl Gamer

October 13, 2018

Teays Physical Therapy Center Inc. and the Putnam Herald are pleased to present this week’s female Gamer of the Week to junior Emily Hudson of Winfield High School.

The Winfield Generals girls soccer team is continuing their season in a positive way; picking up two wins last week against Mingo Central and Sissonville, and a win this week against Hoover.

This brings their overall record to 17-2-1 for the season. As goalkeeper, Hudson has been an essential player this year, only letting up 6 goals all season.

Being a key defensive player for the Generals, Emily is extremely pleased with how the season is going.

When asked about the team this year she responded, “It’s going really good! We are playing really well and working hard to get back to states and make an impression.”

Emily’s main goal this year is to continue winning, and become state champs.

Two of Emily’s biggest motivators are her coaches, Marshall Hoff and David Bailey.

“They push us every day to make ourselves better and mentally stronger,” Emily said.

Emily started playing soccer at just 5 years old; it was this experience of the game that has helped her become the player she is today. Being a captain, while only a junior, takes a lot of leadership qualities that Emily possess.

With the season continuing to be so successful, the Generals plan to take it all the way in the state tournament.

Hudson currently carries a 4.0 GPA and is the daughter of Brian and Pam Hudson. She noted her parents are her biggest supporters in sports and school and have always encouraged her to be her best. Emily stays busy all year long playing basketball, running track and participating in a variety of clubs at school including student council, SADD and DECA.

Please look for other local high school athletes to be named in next week’s Female Gamer of the Week, sponsored by Teays Physical Therapy Center Inc. and the Putnam Herald.
