Chris Megaloudis - Youth Career

Youth Career

Chris played soccer in high school at Monsignor McClancy Memorial High School. He is the school's all-time leading goal scorer. For all of his goal-scoring accomplishments, Christopher was named as team Most Valuable Player after his freshman, junior, and senior years. Throughout his high school career, the Crusaders won the Brooklyn-Queens Championship four times, losing only one game along the way (a span that saw the team go undefeated in 56 league games). In Christopher's sophomore season, the team advanced to the City Championship game. In his junior season, the Crusaders once again progressed to the City Championship game, this time defeating Salesian 2-0, a season that saw the Crusaders outscore their opponents by a staggering 100-17 goals with a school best 14-2-1 record. In his senior year, the team compiled a record of 16-3, falling in a penalty shootout to Saint Joseph's by the Sea in Staten Island. Christopher received recognition as a City All-Star first team member from the C.H.S.A.A. coaches all four years as well as by the Daily News, Newsday, and various local newspapers.

Famous quotes containing the words youth and/or career:

    Passing away, saith the World, passing away:
    Chances, beauty and youth sapped day by day:
    Thy life never continueth in one stay.
    Is the eye waxen dim, is the dark hair changing to gray
    That hath won neither laurel nor bay?
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    It is a great many years since at the outset of my career I had to think seriously what life had to offer that was worth having. I came to the conclusion that the chief good for me was freedom to learn, think, and say what I pleased, when I pleased. I have acted on that conviction... and though strongly, and perhaps wisely, warned that I should probably come to grief, I am entirely satisfied with the results of the line of action I have adopted.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
