KJ Boys Soccer Player of the Year: Maranacook's Jackson McPhedran

“I never had any intentions or thoughts that I’d play defense some day,” McPhedran said. “When I was younger, I loved midfield and being able to distribute the ball from there. My freshman year, I was getting some time at the outside defensive spots and it just kind of went from there.”

It went well, too.

This season, McPhedran scored six goals — negating the six the team allowed. That was part of Beckwith’s thinking from the beginning, something he’s done with a number of talented players in his program over the years.

“We’ve talked about it before, but the defense is the bones of what we do. He’s the bones,” Beckwith said. “If I had Jackie at midfield he would have scored 20 goals, but I put him back in the back because I thought he would stop 20 or 25 goals. I thought it outweighed it. I wanted to make sure we were good back there.”
