Last week Thebe Mosehathebe ‘23 was selected to represent Northwood and play in the All-American High School soccer game. This marks the 5th year in a row that Northwood school has had at least one player selected in the High School All-American team. Northwood has had seven All-American soccer players in its five-year collaboration with Black Rock Football Club.  

Mosehathebe has been at Northwood since his 9th-grade year. He has emerged as a leader on the U19 team and continues to bring a determined, passionate energy to the team. His accomplishments are admirable and inspirational to everyone at Northwood. 

The All-American High School soccer game is an annual event that takes place in December. 45 seniors are chosen to represent their high schools and compete in a high-quality match. The 45 players are divided into two teams based on the location of their schools.  

Mosehathebe is undecided about his university choice, and this match is a fantastic opportunity for uncommitted athletes to display their talent in front of college coaches. The All-American High School game will have scouts from nearly every Division I program in attendance. 

Mosehathebe has influenced many of the players on the younger team. He has been welcoming to new students and is always there to help the younger players. “I am really inspired by Thebe. He is a role model to many of the younger guys here at Northwood,” said Jace Donowa ‘25. “I am enormously proud of him and wish him the best of luck at the game,” Donowa said. 

Diego Green ‘25, a new soccer player at Northwood, agreed. “Thebe was so welcoming to me when I came. I am grateful for the impact he has had on me this year. We play the same position, which is great because he helps me a lot with my game,” Green said. 

Mosehathebe displayed his trademark modesty when reflecting on the achievement. “It is a great honor to have been selected for this team. Having been here for 4 years, I have seen people achieve similar awards before me. I have learned a lot from the seniors in the past couple of years and so I would say that I had amazing role models. To train every day, compete, and sit in the classroom with such driven people from the age of 15 can only have positive effects on someone, which is something I am incredibly grateful for.” 

Thebe Mosehathebe has been outstanding so far this season on and off the field. His actions have inspired many students to be better. He deserves this accomplishment and all of Northwood is supporting him. The students at Northwood are immensely proud and wish him the best of luck at the All-American game on December 10th
