Coach Suleski has been an NSCAA Member Coach since 2000.  In his nine years as varsity boys soccer coach at St. Thomas, Beau is the sixth of his players to win this award.

In nominating Beau for this award Coach Suleski said:

Beau made the varsity team as a sophomore.  He was brought up to improve his skills.  His playing time increased each season until he earned a starting spot his senior year.

He had 1 assist as a junior and scored his first varsity goal this year and added another assist.  A career total of 4 points.  He also earned "Offensive Player of the Game" honors for scoring the game winning goal against West. He was a member of one of the NSCAA Academic Award winning teams.  Over his three varsity seasons he learned to put himself exactly where he needed to be on the field.  He showed great determination and hustle.  He always let me know he was ready to go right back in whenever he came off the field.

Beau was also recognized as a NHSCA/NHIAA Scholar Athlete for being a senior and having a GPA of 3.25 or higher.  He was also a member of the 2012 Team which earned a NSCAA Team Academic Award and the 2014 team which earned a NSCAA Team Ethics & Sportsmanship Silver Award. 

Off the field Beau is an Eagle Scout and has been on the St. Thomas Student Advisory Board (SAB) for 4 years, he is the president this year.  Beau is applying for an Army ROTC scholarship and plans on attending college as an ROTC cadet.
