Belvidere soccer player Isaac Reveles is our new Athlete of the Week.

BELVIDERE (WREX) — Isaac Reveles has had a breakout senior year, with more than 30 goals and 20 assists. But the road to success has had its bumps.

"I tried out my sophomore year, and I had two goals my whole season and I come back, grind for one year, skip junior year and senior year pop off," said Reveles. "It's very shocking for our team to do that."

After watching the Bucs win one game last season, Reveles decided to re-join the team to help rebuild the program.

"It was embarrassing and that's kind of rude to my team but everyone made fun of us," said Reveles."We're BHS, like a small town, no one believes in us, we just kept pushing on and we're here."

After teammates and coaches strongly urged Reveles to come back to the squad, he finally accepted.

"I started liking the team and how we always bonded after practices and stuff," said Reveles. "Cookouts, McDonald's, McDonald's a lot but we're always bonding as a team so that was fun."

For first-year head coach Adam Estrada, the team has had significant success and will host a Regional next week. Reveles is a big reason why the Bucs have emerged from the bottom of the NIC-10.

"He is a much different person than two years ago," said Estrada. "His maturity, he's stepped up, his game stepped up and he's just incredible to watch. One of the best kids in the conference, in the state."

It's all love between Reveles and his coaches.

"I owe it all to them, like honestly," said Reveles."They always push me to do better and put myself into everything."

A breakout senior year for Isaac Reveles, as he hopes to lead the Bucs to a big playoff run.
