“He can play the field almost as well as the guys who play out there all the time,” Langlois said. “He wasn’t used to the running at first, but whenever he was on the field he was definitely effective. There were a lot of things that he could see that other kids didn’t, and it came from him watching the game from the goal and noticing certain patterns. And he was able to take advantage of that when he was playing the field.”
But now it looks as if Sedler’s 2013 time on offense is coming to an end. For the past two seasons, Sedler has split his time in net with Sherwood. But at the halfway point of the season, and with only two wins to go to clinch a tournament berth, Langlois said it is time to focus. Sedler will be the starting goalkeeper for the Sachems from here on in.
“He is confident,” Langlois said of Sedler in net. “He has unbelievable range. He can cover the entire goal from top corner to bottom corner. Some of the dives he has made in the last couple of games have just been incredible, and he’s also got a great foot.”
Langlois has also been happy to see that Sedler has become much more vocal in net of late.
“Last year I was a sophomore, and I was starting most of the games, but I was still just a sophomore,” said Sedler, who was named All-Cape Ann League goalkeeper last season, racking up 15 wins. “I was trying to direct people who were juniors and seniors and had a lot more experience in high school than me. But this year, I’m a junior, so I’m trying to direct people more because I feel like I am more in control with it.”
