A threat whenever she touches the ball, Central Union High girls junior soccer player, Ana Nava had her career-best outing last week when she scored four goals in a 5-0 triumph over host Imperial High.
"She's a natural forward," coach Nabil Noujaim said, noting Nava leads the team with 10 goals and nine assists.
Nava doesn't play just one position on the front line. Instead she roams from the left side to the right side and sometimes attacks from the middle of the field.
"I like playing on the wing best," she said.
Nava added she feels fortunate she has been given the green light to roam the field.
"I'm kind of lucky coach has confidence in me and lets me play wherever I want."
Said Noujaim: "As long as she's effective, I let her do what she wants."
While Nava likes to take her shots from either the right or the left side, there is one constant.
