The 5-foot-10, 170-pound senior forward scored 21 goals and passed for 20 assists this past season, leading the Wolves (16-1-1) to the Division 1 state championship. The state’s returning Gatorade Boys Soccer Player of the Year, O’Hara is also a three-time First Team All-State honoree and an All-American selection by United Soccer Coaches.
O’Hara has maintained a 4.06 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer on scholarship at Bucknell University this fall.
Also a talented musician, O’Hara has volunteered locally on behalf of blood-donation drives, an elementary school literacy outreach initiative and a basketball program for disabled children. “Patrick O’Hara is a special player,” said Stephen Levesque, head coach of St. Johnsbury Academy. “He is the complete package: He has pace, he can beat guys off the dribble, he can finish and he can set his teammates up to score. He’s one of the best I’ve seen at that age.”
