Cameron Spencer’s soccer plans, post-graduation from Ponderosa High, is to resume his career at Humboldt State University for the Lumberjacks.

The mascot is fitting.

Aside from soccer, Spencer, who also excels in the classroom, is recognized for his creative craft with wood working which has twice won him an ‘Excellence in Student Achievement’ award as a Bruin. Last year, a chair he made from manzanita won 1st place, Best of Show, and the Golden Johnny Award for best exhibit at the fair.

Not many can make the claim Spencer can when, as an 8-week old, he was one of several infant actors playing the role of little Bob in the 1995 movie “Smoke Jumpers: In the line of Duty” filmed in El Dorado County and featured in a Mountain Democrat write-up that year.

Away from the glare of movie-making, Spencer found his passion for soccer. His first competitive team was the U9 El Dorado United; the Sac United Reds since 2009.

With the Reds, Spencer teams with Ponderosa teammates Trevor Swartz and Curtis Goldsmith who both will also play at the college level — Swartz for Indiana University and Goldsmith at UOP.

Last Month, Sac United captured the U19 Men’s NorCal State Cup after defeating Modesto’s Milan FC 6-0. In the tournament, the Reds outscored their opponents 44-5 in seven victories to get a National, Region 4 and California North ranking of No. 1 from gotsoccer.com.

In two varsity seasons, Spencer was an All League performer for the Bruins and a co-captain. At Humboldt he plans to major in Environmental Management and Protection.
