Even Michele Daubman’s soccer coach at Plainedge admits that girls soccer is not the No.1 sport for Nassau’s No. 1 in points.
“She’s a three sport person, and softball is her No. 1,” Jerry Gates said. “Soccer she puts 110 percent into it, but she does so many other clinics for softball and basketball.”
And yet no has been more instrumental to the Red Devil’s success this year than Daubman. Coming into Thursday she leads the county in points (21) and is third in goals scored with (12).
All this in her first year as a center-forward. Daubman played 2009 as an outside halfback scoring just a handful of goals. But the team needed a stronger attack up front and tried to utilize Daubman’s aggressiveness.
“She’s just a bull in a china shop. That’s what she’s doing right now,” said Gates, who marveled at how Daubman could excel in three sports. “It’s mind boggling. She’s once in a lifetime in regards to what she does. She never says die. She’s just constantly on and on and on.”
