Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week: Emilee Futrell


Emilee Futrell became a postseason force for her Fike High varsity girls soccer team, making her this week’s Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.

Emilee, a freshman midfielder, scored three of her five goals on the season during three Lady Demons playoff wins. She had two, including the game-winner in the second overtime, in Fike’s fourth-round win over Northern Guilford.

The Lady Demons lost to eventual state champion Chapel Hill 2-0 on Tuesday in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 3-A semifinals, matching Fike’s deepest playoff run ever.

Emilee, who also had an assist in the postseason, finished with four on the season.

The daughter of Debby and Jeff Futrell of Wilson, Emilee has a 4.5 weighted grade point average while taking honors courses. She is a member of Club UNIFY, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Student Booster Club at Fike.

Emilee, who skipped a grade in elementary school and just turned 14, plays for the East Wake Soccer Association Lady Hammers U15 and U16 teams.

She volunteers as a youth gymnastics instructor at Wilson Family YMCA.
