Seneca Valley’s Beau Lizewski leads Trib HSSN Boys Fab 15 Soccer Team
Saturday, December 3, 2022 | 4:25 PM
When Seneca Valley needed to break down a back line, funnel possession to the midfield or counter an attack, the Raiders knew who get the soccer ball to.
Senior midfielder Beau Lizewski has been one of the WPIAL’s most complete players during his prep career, and a winner at that.
Lizewski is the TribLive HSSN Boys Soccer Player of the Year after leading the Raiders to a PIAA Class 4A championship and a runner-up finish in the WPIAL.
Moon’s Ryan Kopay and Will Gruca of Ambridge also were considered.
Seneca Valley, which won WPIAL titles in three of the past five years, flipped the script after losing in the state final last year. Lizewski, the WPIAL Class 4A Player of the Year, facilitated offense in the PIAA title match, delivering an assist as Seneca Valley blanked Lower Marion, 6-0.
His postseason honors were impressive: He was named to the United Soccer Coaches Region II All-American and was selected to the USC All-Regional II East Team.
He also made the Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association All-State First Team.
