Player of the Week: Robbie Crockett

Robbie Crockett

Robbie Crockett is a basketball junkie.

“If someone is playing, he is there. Robbie has had to battle through some pretty tough injuries to get to where he is today. In middle school, he broke his leg. Last year, he battled a really bad ankle injury, and this year battled a really bad cold much of the season. Despite all of this, he continued to show up and work hard every day,” Lake Region varsity basketball coach John Mayo said.

Robbie can “do a little of everything” for the Lakers, play inside against the bigger players or go outside and shoot from the 3-point arc, Coach Mayo pointed out.

“It has been exciting to watch him grow as a player and a person over the years,” Coach Mayo added. “It is a pleasure to coach him.”

In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Robbie is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing. Recipients receive a specially-designed T-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber.
