Nick Willner came into his senior season at Lincoln-Way Central hoping to be the Knights’ offensive leader and pick up the slack left by the graduation of some of last season’s stars, notably high-scoring Connor Erickson.

Willner has taken on the leadership role with great success. Through four games, he had already scored nine goals for the Knights.

Four of them came Sept. 3 when Central rolled to a 7-0 win over Aurora Central Catholic in the Knights’ home opener in New Lenox.
