Concord High School soccer striker Jordan Raynor is this week's WDEL Male High School Athlete of the Week.

Raynor scored 4 goals and had an assist in unbeaten Concord's two wins last week.

Jordan says his goal totals are thanks to his teammates.

"I get a lot of help. Most of my goals are just because of them. They just pass me the ball and I'm in the right spot."

Concord's 9 wins this season matches their regular season total from a year ago, what has been the biggest change for the Raiders?

"I think we're working a lot better in the center mid(field) this year than last year, and just playing better as a team."

Jordan says he started playing soccer at age 4, but his earliest soccer memory comes from a failed goal celebration.

"I was about 11, playing indoors, and scored a goal, I tripped and fell down."

As for life after Concord, Jordan says he's being looked at by Division II and III schools to play soccer, and says a TV show may help sway his choice in major.

"CSI is one of my favorite shows, so forensics is very interesting. My brother is majoring in criminal justice, so that interests me as well."
