Kyle Pierson ‘23 Named Gatorade Michigan Boys Soccer Player of the Year
In its 38th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, Gatorade announced Kyle Pierson ‘23 as Gatorade Michigan Boys Soccer Player of the Year for the 2022-23 season. This recognition marks not only Pierson's exceptional athletic prowess, but also his academic achievements and exemplary character, both on and off the field.

Pierson becomes the second Shamrock to receive the recognition, preceded by his brother, Ryan Pierson ‘18. Pierson, a senior captain, scored an impressive 37 goals and provided 21 assists in the 2022-2023 season. His remarkable performance played a vital role in leading the Shamrocks (20-2-3) to the Division I state semifinals. Pierson was also recognized as the 2022 Michigan High School Soccer Coaches Association's Mr. Soccer, and PrepSoccer.com ranked him as the nation's 83rd recruit in the Class of 2023.

Off the field, Pierson has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to his community. He volunteers at local homeless shelters, food banks, and dedicates his time to the Miracle League—an inclusive sports community for children with intellectual and physical challenges. Additionally, Pierson has generously shared his knowledge and passion for soccer as a youth coach, inspiring and mentoring young athletes.

Pierson signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer on scholarship at the University of Michigan, where he will continue to pursue his passion for the sport while furthering his education.

Pierson's achievements place him in the ranks of other notable Gatorade Michigan Boys Soccer Players of the Year, including Nick Cassiday, Roni Sylejmani, and Aidan O'Connor. This recognition not only celebrates Pierson's individual success but also highlights the rich tradition of athletic excellence at Catholic Central. CC takes great pride in honoring Pierson's accomplishments and wishes him continued success in his future endeavors.
