    Unlike most seniors at Central Hardin High School, Noah Wiersema might not be dancing in a rented tux and singing off key to the latest hit song at prom this April.

    Instead, he might spend that evening sprinting in muddy cleats on a soccer field at a tournament in Michigan.

    “I’ve been playing soccer for pretty much forever.” said Wiersema, captain of the Bruins’ boys varsity soccer team. Quitting has never been an option, he said.
