Athlete of the Week: Isaiah Mundell Waverly-Shell Rock

Posted: Updated:
Waverly-Shell Rock's Isaiah Mundell seems to be scoring at will this season.

"I've been working hard, coming out in summer, shooting," Mundell said.

And that work has shown as the senior scored 26 goals this season -- tops in class 2-A -- and 7 more than he scored in the previous 2 years combined. That along with stellar play from his teammates has vaulted the Go-Hawks to number one in the state.

 
"I think lots of our team chemistry has been a major part. The last 2 years we've had most of the same players playing and just now by our 3rd year on varsity we've had a lot of time to play with each other," Mundell said.

"Me, him, Joshua, and Tanner all come out here in the summer, shoot around, play the 7 on 7 league at Wartburg," Waverly-Shell Rock Senior Thomas Foy said.

But one of those 4 has had the most influence on Isaiah -- his twin brother Josh also starts for the Go-Hawks as a defender -- and that dynamic has given both Mundell's a boost on the field.

"They're unique. They're true leaders on the field," Coach Alden Muhamedagic said.

"He's the one that scores goals, and I prevent them. It makes it competitive at home and on the field as well," Waverly-Shell Rock Senior Josh Mundell said.

But it's not just those two, this Waverly-Shell Rock team seems to mesh even better than last year's team which finished 3rd in the state. That's got Isaiah Mundell thinking big now that the postseason's arrived.

"I think we can win it all. Been doing well with chemistry, defense, just letting in 4 goals. Could go all the way."
