  Top Athlete: P.J. Stickle

HE WAS A forward/striker who scored 23 goals this season on a Canfield team that shut out all opponents until the last game of September when Mooney scored a goal. He helped lead Canfield to a district final before the Cards finished runner-up to Howland. Stickle also had Canfield’s second-highest goal output of 15 as a junior. As a sophomore, he had one goal, but it was the game-winner in double overtime in a postseason game against North Canton. After 90 minutes of regulation and one 10-minute overtime, Stickle scored on a header midway through the second overtime period. “That was my only goal of the season,” said Stickle, who was injured early in his season. “So I had to work my way back to varsity.” Stickle credits Tony El-Hayek, Michael DeRose and Julian Fusillo as those who have helped get him the ball. Several of Stickle’s goals were headers off of throw-ins by El-Hayek. Most other goals have come via corner kicks or set plays. Stickle was introduced to soccer at age 5 in Canfield’s recreational league. He then played with FC Canfield, a traveling team. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder is also a basketball team player, who also was on Canfield’s baseball team as a freshman and sophomore. He made first-team All-American Conference as a junior and senior, first-team all-district, first-team all-county and, as a senior, was district player of the year and first team all-state. He was also WYTV’s Student-Athlete of the Week.
