North Laurel’s Tanner Broyles captures First Team All-State honors

LONDON — North Laurel’s Tanner Broyles received a top honor by being selected to the East’s All-State First Team.

Broyles helped guide the Jaguars to a 15-6-3 mark along with a 49th District title, the boys’ soccer program’s first-ever 13th Region championship, and an appearance in the KHSAA State Tournament’s Elite Eight.

He finished with 13 goals, and a team-best 10 assists.

“Tanner is the type of player that we look for in our program, a player that can score but also make his teammates better on the field,” North Laurel coach David Broyles said. “In the four years he’s played for our high school team, you could see a change in the team dynamic and a major shift in the work ethic. This past season, the team was able to make it further than any team in the school’s history, and Tanner played a crucial role in that accomplishment. He was a very dependable player and leader, and he will definitely be missed on the field next season. 

“Just a few of his accomplishments are setting the single-season assist record last year at 26 and setting the all time assist record this season at 43,” he added. “He finished this season with 13 goals and 10 assists and has a career goal count of 34. He and his senior teammates have created a legacy for future teams to continue and to that your coaches say congratulations.”
