VHSC Hall of Fame Induction: Congratulations to Adam Watson!

We are thrilled to announce that Vestavia Hills High School senior Adam Watson was inducted into the VHSC Hall of Fame during last Sunday night's prestigious Top Soccer Awards Ceremony. Adam's remarkable journey began six years ago when he first joined as a Sidekick, and his dedication has only grown since then. Recently, he has excelled as a Lead Coach, earning the esteemed title of the 2023 Top Soccer Coach of the Year for Alabama.

Adam's outstanding contributions to our club and the Top Soccer program have not gone unnoticed. His passion for soccer and commitment to nurturing young talents make him a truly deserving recipient of this honor.

In addition to Adam's induction, we are proud to acknowledge the esteemed company he joins in the Hall of Fame, including Director of Soccer Luke Whittle and current Club President Frank Hernandez.

We especially thank Councilwoman Kimberly Cook for gracing us with her presence at the ceremony and for presenting trophies to our special needs players. We also extend our gratitude to our club and program sponsors, Liberty Park Children's Dentistry and Dr. Ying, for their unwavering support.

As we continue to expand our program, we are always on the lookout for Sidekicks—able-bodied assistant coaches—who play a vital role in our Top Soccer program. Keep an eye out for informational emails in August to learn how your family can get involved in the Top Soccer program for the Fall season.

Join us in congratulating Adam Watson on this well-deserved achievement and celebrating his legacy within the VHSC community!
