Crete-Monee's Carlos Posada has been on quite the scoring streak the past two seasons. In those two years, Posada recorded 131 goals on his way to shattering Illinois' all-time scoring record.

The record was held by Billy Savarino who scored 159 goals during his Brother Rice career. The record will sit at 177 career goals. Posada has been a four year starter for the Warriors and along with his new spot atop the Illinois scoring list, Posada is the Times 2011 Player of the Year.

"It will probably mean a lot more to me when I'm older," Posada said of the record. "I'm not sure how long it will last. Hopefully at least a little while."

Posada was the offense much of the past two years for a Warrior team that won the Class 2A Marian Catholic Regional before a tough loss in the Lemont Sectional semifinal ended the 2011 Crete-Monee season.

In the loss, the Warriors had taken a 2-0 lead against Bremen before weather delayed the game until the following evening. After the delay and an eventual 3-0 halftime lead, the Warriors lost the game 5-4 in overtime.

"I blame it on ourselves," Posada said of the season ending loss. "All we had to do was hold three goals which we should have done."

With the help of Ryan and Matt Sadowski, Posada and the Warriors were able to become something of a force in the Southland Athletic Conference over the past few seasons.

"Ryan and Matt were definitely a big part of it and a big piece of it," Posada said of his personal and the team's successes. "If we didn't have them we probably wouldn't be near as good as we were. Ryan gave me a lot of assists."

Posada is unsure what his future holds, but he knows that soccer will be in his future plans. To stay in shape he is playing in indoor leagues and hopes to play for some type of college in the future.

"I'm playing for a lot of indoor teams. Some are for fun and some are serious. I play for about three or four indoor teams just to stay fit."
