The Fulshear High School boys soccer team’s 2020 season was halted with the playoffs already in sight.

The schedule will forever show that the Chargers had two games remaining with a District 23-4A title still in their sights following a 2019 campaign that ended in the regional championship round.

Fulshear had the experience to again go deep in the playoffs, but the postseason was lost to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chargers were forced to settle for an armful of individual awards from District 23-4A coaches.

In total, 16 Chargers were named to on the District 23-4A all-district boys soccer team including winning two of the top awards.

Senior forward Isaiah Figueroa shared MVP honors with Needville senior Juan Ventura.

Figueroa led a Fulshear offense that averaged 3.42 goals during district play.

Figueroa was a first-team selection last year.

Senior Cole Burke repeated his honor from last year as co-goalkeeper of the year. This time he shared the honor with Stafford senior Kevin Zuniga.

Burke was the final line of defense for a Fulshear team that allowed 1.29 goals per game on the season while allowing less than one goal per game during district play.

Figueroa and Burke were joined on the first team by junior midfielder Doni Gutierrez, junior defender Taylor Uribe, senior midfielder Trey Murphy, senior midfielder Albert Bradshaw and sophomore midfielder Bryce Pope.

Fulshear had five selections to the second team with senior defender Marcel Perez, junior midfielder Alieldin Ahmed, senior midfielder Richmond Okeke, junior midfielder Marlon Viera and junior midfielder Javier Garcia.

Seniors Jose Machado, Alaa Hindi, Cael Jurkowski and Sam Wilson earned honorable mention recognition.

Fulshear finished the season with a 13-5-3 mark overall. The Chargers were 8-2 in District 23-4A play, and finished in second place behind only Stafford at 9-1.

The Chargers will move up to Class 5A next season.
