Former McClain High School graduate Luis Rivas, now a senior at Otterbein University, is having a standout year playing soccer for the Cardinals.

With three games left in the regular season, Rivas is leading his team in goals with 12 on the year, four of those goals being game-winners. The team as a whole has 37 on the season thus far.

Rivas is also tied for number one goal scorer in the Ohio Athletic Conference in which Otterbein plays.

Most recently, Rivas helped his team defeat Wilmington College 6-2, scoring two goals in that game including the first one of the match.

Rivas and the Cardinals have three games left this season with their next one being against Baldwin Wallace this Saturday.
