A Gridley High School soccer star David Gomez has landed in Sports Illustrated’s iconic Faces in the Crowd, a weekly segment that highlights the success of amateur athletes.

Gomez helped the Bulldogs repeat as Northern Section Div-II champions. Gomez tallied 32 goals and 17 assists while earning Butte View League MVP honors.

"It made me feel like I actually did something even bigger than I had done before, so it was surprising. It takes 11 players to function on the field so that's what really helped me stand out is my partners always being there for me and motivating me to do better," said Gomez.
