The Patriot League boys’ soccer coaches selected four Bonsall High School boys’ soccer players for all-league honors while the Sierra League boys’ basketball coaches named one Legionnaires player to the all-league teams.
First-team Patriot League recognition was bestowed upon senior Jonathan Esposito and sophomore Colin McKinney. The second team included junior Jonathan Fabry and sophomore David Romo. Bonsall junior Billy Rahman was named to the Sierra League second team.
“It’s a great testament to their work ethic and the heart that they showed throughout the season,” Bonsall coach Francisco Camarena said of four of his players earning all-league designation.
The Legionnaires only had nine players and thus were two players down in every game. Bonsall finished last in the six-team league standings with a 1-7-2 Patriot League record, although two of the league losses were forfeits when the Legionaries did not have enough available players and two on-field league losses were by a single goal while two other circuit defeats were by two-goal margins. The Legionnaires’ overall record was 5-10-3.
Esposito played both center midfielder and striker.
“He’s a great individual talent but also team-oriented, always looks to teammates to be part of the game,” Camarena said.
McKinney played forward and midfield during the 2019-2020 season.
“Very proud of his efforts. He’s got very explosive speed that he was able to utilize,” Camarena said.
Romo is a midfielder.
“David Romo was the foundation of the midfield area,” Camarena said.
Fabry is a center back.
“He was a very key component in our defense,” Camarena said.
Rahman is a point guard. He led the team in scoring, assists and steals.
“He’s a very established player,” Bonsall coach Chuck Colletti said.
Last year Bonsall was also in the Patriot League for basketball and Rahman was selected to the all-league first team. The Sierra League is a higher-level league. Bonsall posted a 4-6 Sierra League record this season, tying the Legionnaires for third place in the standings and had a 12-11 overall mark. The Legionnaires won their final five games of the season.
