Jaxon’s pre-Christmas surprise

Jaxon Cover (centre) is presented with his award from Futbolista World Manager Celso Montoya and Cayman Sports Buzz Editor Ben Meade.

A young boy strolls into a store loaded with equipment and apparel of one of his favourite sports. The eight year-old is joined by his father and older brother but he’s oblivious to what happens next.

Jaxon Cover’s Christmas week got a little brighter. He engages in conversation with another customer about his love for football (or soccer as he’s called it coming from Canada). The gentleman, who he later learns is the editor of Cayman Sports Buzz and the conversation zeroes in on his participation in Academy Sports Club’s 7v7 Mini Slam tournament a few days earlier.

It’s then the enthusiastic youngster, who also plays for Sunset Football Club, learns he’s been selected as the Cayman Sports Buzz Footballer of the Week presented by Futbolista World.

On 17 December, Jaxon starred for the Cayman Prep School team that won the Under-11 division of the tournament. He scored the most goals among players in his age group en route to the title.

“It was really fun,” Jaxon said of his experience. “Even though I got top goal scorer, it was all about fun.”

He was excited upon learning of being named Footballer of the Week. The look on his face said it all but his words were more succinct. “I like it. I was really good to get the award,” he said.

Jaxon was presented with a certificate, a Futbolista World sports shirt, and a gift certificate to be used toward new gear at Futbolista World. He has also been entered into a draw to win an additional prize from Futbolista World at the end of the season. And in the true spirit of a child at Christmas, he immediately looked around the store to see what he could use his gift certificate toward.

Each week, Cayman Sports Buzz will select a player for the Footballer of the Week honour based on their performance in any of the following leagues: Cayman Premier League, CIFA Women’s Premier League, CIFA First Division, CIFA youth leagues and the CUC Primary Football League/Girls Primary Football League. With not much action happening, we added the participants of children’s tournament to the list of eligible winners.

At the end of the season, Cayman Sports Buzz will be presenting a more substantial award to the Footballer of the Year.
