Goal scoring machines: here are the only 2 four times Advance All Stars in men’s soccer
Staten Island has certainly seen its share of top contenders in high school boys’ football over the years, many of whom have gone on to succeed at higher levels.
But in the 44 years that Advance / SILive.com has selected the sport’s All Stars, only two players have received the honor in each of their four college seasons: Adam Gage of Monsignor Farrell and John Tardy of St. Joseph by- the-Sea.
Gage competed for the Lions between the 1998-2001 seasons before graduating from Oakwood School in 2002. Tardy, meanwhile, played for the Vikings between 2003 and 2006 and graduated from the Huguenot school in 2007.
Although Gage and Tardy graduated five years apart, they have similarities. Both wore the No.9 uniform, both verbally engaged in Atlantic Coast Conference schools and, of course, both regularly scoring goals.
Gage and Tardy have also led their respective schools to unprecedented success during their respective four-year careers and Advance / SILive.com will be going to the past to recognize some of their accomplishments with a slideshow.
