With the CSL season fast approaching, we thought it would be a good opportunity post the first ‘Get in the Box’ features where we catch up with Doxa players new and old to find out a little more about them. In the first edition, we caught up with experienced hard hitting defender, Nate Reeves to learn more about his personality and find out how he really feels about his team mates!
Name: Nathan “the Angry One” Reeves
Occupation: Property Manager
Position: Where I can can get stuck in the most.
Years with Doxa: 4 amazing, yet blurry years. I think all the Vegas tournaments are finally starting to catch up with me cause it feels like a hell of a lot longer than that.
Soccer career highlight: Making it to the finals in Div II, and then losing! Did someone say 10 minutes to go? Not sure if that’s really a highlight, but my meltdown I had on that ref about a month and a half ago was truly a great highlight!! Donkey!!!
Favorite player to play with: Well, being a defender who enjoys tackles I’d have to say the Big Greek, NASOOOOOOOOOS! The guy is just everywhere and even when he makes a crushing tackle he is the first guy helping you back up. I’ve never played with a nicer guy who truly enjoys the sport!!Welcome back Nas!
Favorite player to play against: I just enjoy playing so I can’t say there’s one particular player, but I love playing against cocky players that think they’ve done something in their careers, whether it be played for a top Div I school or professionally somewhere and knowing that no matter where they’ve played, they still get balled up.
Most likely player on the team to:
- score a hattrick?The white Pele, Steve “Chirgalicious” Chirgwin, but Captain Derk is ever present and always a threat in the air or around the box.
- get goal of the season? This guy has a knack for scoring some amazing goals at the most random times, Ryan “I wish I didn’t have long red hair” Tyler
- get a red card? Easy, YOURS TRULY SON!!
- fall over the ball? Hahahaha probably Bryan Byrne or that crazy Egyptian guy, ”O” to the “mazing, ” Omar.
- be drunk for 90 minutes?Sean “I’m going through a mid-life crisis” Lockhart, but I would have to say it would be a close second for about half our team!
Other sports you play/have played? I’m a big golfer, but love playing baseball, basketball, surfing, beer pong, and basically anything and everything and if we can mix in a beer or ten, even better!
Childhood highlight? Having my sister play on our elementary school soccer team and ball it up. When she would play forward, I would play defense and vice-verse. It was just a rarity to see a girl playing with all guys and on top of that having her on my team tearing it up was a great experience.
Favorite moment outside of soccer? Being a groomsman in one of my best friends wedding! That whole weekend was awesome! Truly an amazing experience and very blessed to be apart of that! Thanks Aaron and Mel!
Whats your favorite beer? Newcastle - but anything that’s cold and quick to get to is always good.
Favorite bar? Robbie G, G-R-U-N-I-O-N-S!! However I have heard the Tilted Kilt is quite lovely.
Cher or Madonna? Madonna, but Madonna in the 80′s, not now. Cher’s always looked like a man, so negative on that!
If you could marry any women in the world who would it be? Marisa Miller, AMAZING!!!!!!!
