Liberty's Sachem Wilson not only uses his abilities on the field to lead Liberty to wins, but the forward also tries to use his skills to lead others to Christ.

During today's LFSN Game On feature story, reporter Clement Townsend talks with the junior about his development in the game of soccer and how he glorifies God with his abilities on the pitch.

The forward led the Flames in goals in 2014, finishing the season with a team-high eight goals. During his three year career on Liberty Mountain, Wilson has scored 20 goals, giving him a chance to share his faith with a simple gesture each time the ball hits the back of the net.

Following a goal, Wilson can be seen celebrating with his fellow teammates as his gives the sign of the cross of Christ with his arms. He uses the opportunity to provide a witness to all watching about his personal faith.

Wilson has been playing soccer since the age of four with the help of his father, who started working with Wilson while serving as the chaplain at Brown University.

Wilson shares the same name as his father, Theodore. He was given the nickname of Sachem from his friends during his time growing up in a Native American community in Rhode Island.

"Sachem" means leader in the Native American community. Liberty's leading goal scorer tries to use the platform of soccer to be a leader on his team, both athletically and spiritually.
