As one of three returning players who scored more than 10 goals last season, Carson Bien was counted on to be a scorer— and leader — for Jesuit.
The senior forward continued his penchant for putting the ball through the net. He led the Tigers in scoring this season with 28 goals, including 11 game-winners. That helped Jesuit finish 24-3-2 and win the Class 5A state title, the school’s first since 2001.
By racking up so many goals — and wins — Bien gained some notoriety. Last week, he was named the Florida Dairy Farmers’ 5A state boys soccer player of the year. The winners in each classification were selected by a panel of high school boys soccer coaches and reporters.
“It meant everything to me because I see it as a reflection of all the hard work that my team and I put in throughout the season,” Bien said of winning 5A state honors.
Carson Bien improved as a scorer each of the past three seasons.
2017-18 4 goals
2018-19 11 goals
2019-20 28 goals
Bien finishes his soccer career on top. He had some options to play in college but decided a few months ago to give that up because he could not find the right fit. Instead, he will attend FSU as a student.
