Hancock Lumber Player of Week: Mike Triglione
By Wayne E. Rivet
Mike Triglione likes to look at things in a positive fashion.
While some might be feeling a little down and frustrated after an 0-4 start to this football season, Mike points to improvements his Lake Region team is making.
“We’re getting better every week,” the senior quarterback said.
Trying to turn around a football program that is 0-12 the past two seasons, first-year Coach Brian Jahna finds Triglione as a godsend.
“Mike has been a steady and calm force even in the most unstable situations for the team this year,” Coach Jahna said. “Last week, he headed both the offensive and defensive huddles, providing strong leadership in both. Mike has that rare ability to stay in the moment with his focus and determination, even when that particular activity is unpleasant or has delayed rewards.”
The coach certainly appreciates how Triglione is quick to embrace the younger players and give them confidence in their own abilities.
“He listens to feedback with quiet intensity and responds to it immediately by his actions,” Coach Jahna said. “His respectful demeanor and on-field behavior embodies Laker football.”
Based on his good sportsmanship, dedication and commitment to the football program, and his standout performance, Mike Triglione has been selected as the Lake Region Athletic Boosters Club “Hancock Lumber Player of the Week.”
Each week, a player is recognized by the Boosters Club, and presented a specially-designed t-shirt sponsored by Hancock Lumber.
