In a highly competitive season, dozens more soccer players made huge impact

SportsDay's All-Area boys soccer team is out, and it's an extremely talented group.

Player of the Year Stian Sandbekkhaug had 39 goals and 23 assists, Newcomer of the Year Braeden Andrews helped lead his team to state, and Coach of the Year Howard Putter brought Byron Nelson its first state title.

We can only put 22 players on our first- and second-teams, but there were plenty more deserving of recognition. Here's 33 more players - three team's worth - who just missed inclusion on our all-area team.
