"Even as a freshman, I knew he was something special, just his ability to control the ball and see the game and make things happen," Northland Pines head coach Mark Pinski said.
"I started playing soccer when I was 6 years old, and I'm not exactly sure why," Oas said. "I felt like I could express myself with the ball on the field."
The Eagles don't just count on Oas to carry the team.
"They all kind of push each other and they want to work together as a team," Pinski said. "It definitely brings another level."
Pines has scored a conference-high 37 goals in GNC play, including eight from senior Lochlan Siegmeier, who has become Liam's partner in crime on the front line.
"We just have a passion for soccer and we both love to win and do well and succeed," Siegmeier said.
With Oas leading the charge, the Eagles have a new standard for success.
"Anything less than making it to state would kind of be a failure because we know that we can make it," Oas said.
Northland Pines has two matches left in its regular season. They'll play Three Lakes/Phelps Tuesday, then wrap up their conference slate against Mosinee on Thursday.
