Oakland and Central Magnet both advanced to the 2001 boys’ state soccer championships last month as each was blessed with a talented roster.
So talented, in fact, that the two combined to put 13 players on the All-Rutherford County as announced by The Murfreesboro Post.
Leading the way are Oakland's Braxton Robinson and Central Magnet's Jorge Graniel, who are the 2001 Players of the Year.
Oakland finished the season with a 19-1-3 record, falling to eventual champion Houston 2-1 (5-4 on penalty kicks) in the semifinals. The Tigers fell 3-2 in the first round to eventual champion Sevier County.
