Toyota High School Athlete- Caleb Eaton

Cincinnatus Soccer star Caleb Eaton

This week's Toyota High School Athlete is helping to make history in one Central New York town.

Caleb Eaton scored the only goal in Tuesday night's Section III Championship game between Cincinnatus and McGraw.

For that effort, we're honoring Eaton as this week's Toyota High School Athlete of the Week.

Any championship is special, but consider this:

The last time Cincinnatus won the Section III Championship in Boys Soccer was 1982.

33 Years ago.

So, to say Eaton's goal was special would be an understatement.

"It went back and forth, the goal wasn't for a while. It took a lot of heart and that's what it came down to was heart and grit. We had more." Eaton says of the championship victory.

Now, the Lions move onto the New York State semifinals. There, they will meet Cherry Valley-Springfield from Section IV.

"We'll be ready for it, I think. Our coach has been pushing us the whole year, especially now, we'll be working harder now that we're this far. It's been a while since we've gone this far and I couldn't be more proud of my team" Eaton adds.

The contest with Cherry Valley-Springfield will be played at noon Saturday at Chittenango High School.
