Q&A: Senior soccer player on a roll

Landon Cambridge is a Brown County senior soccer player.

Cambridge scored nine goals the week of Aug. 27, including seven in two games Sept. 2 in the Hoosier Cup. He netted two goals in a 3-1 win Aug. 29 at Edgewood, two more in his team’s 5-2 loss Sept. 2 to the Center Grove JV, and all five of his team’s goals in the 5-2 win Sept. 2 against Evansville North. He was named The Republic’s athlete of the week on Sept. 7.

His performance: “All of us as a team played significantly better (against Evansville North). It just was a really good game for all of us. I just felt like I played better than I have in all the seasons I’ve played.”

Do you do anything special to prepare? “We have a routine that the whole team goes through, but if we have extra time beforehand like we did at the Hoosier Cup, I will listen to music and work with the ball. I don’t do much shooting to warm up because I don’t shoot from far out much. I work on my speed to get around defenders.”

Favorite drink: “Fairlife chocolate milk”

Favorite food: “Lipton’s cheddar broccoli cheesy rice with grilled chicken”

Best advice: “Live life to the fullest, and never let an opportunity pass.”

Athletics goal: “My athletic goal for this year was to reach a 300-pound bench press, and for the end of soccer season is to get the top goal scorer or MVP award for the team.”

If you could travel anywhere: “Germany, because my dad traveled there.”
