The late Justin Lucas "Hutch" Hutcheson, former goal keeper for the King William Cavaliers Boys Soccer Team, still brings thrills to the minds of his teammates when you mention his 28 stopped shots as goal keeper against undefeated George Mason to protect a 1-0 victory for the Cavaliers in 2008. The win enabled the undefeated Cavaliers to claim the Tidewater District Championship and move on to the State Final Four at Radford that year.
Hutch died much too young in 2012 but his motivation, positive attitude and work ethic still lives on inspiring his teammates and many others to be the best they can be. His family (mother Andrea Johnson and step dad Doug Johnson, grandmother Donna Coats and step grand dad Don Coats) recently made a sizable donation to the Boys Soccer Program in memory of Hutch. To show their appreciation Soccer Coach Chris Harris, School Supt David White, the Boys Soccer Team, staff and friends gathered on the Boys Soccer Field behind Hamilton-Holmes Middle School on May 19 to recognize Hutch's family. Each soccer player gave Hutch's mother and grandmother a flower, wreath medals were given to the step dad and grand dad, and two plaques made for the player's benches were unveiled. Hutch's memory lives on!
