Player of the Week: Adam Falk

Adam Falk

Adam Falk

Adam Falk has incredible energy and loves to play any sport — including tennis.

“His background in tennis is limited, but his will to compete is unlimited. He not only learns from an opponent who plays better than him, but he asks for coaching tips and applies them immediately,” Lake Region varsity boys’ tennis coach Brook Sulloway said. “Adam can adapt to an opponent’s game quickly and find ways to stay in the game. He has an amazing ability to run and reach for hard-to-get shots. This is often a frustration for opponents who think they are going to dispense with him quickly.”

Coach Sulloway says Adam is “clearly a dedicated student and a great role model to have on the team.” Adam has been a pleasure to coach, Sulloway added. The coach has enjoyed watching Adam’s improvement day by day.

“Adam has only won one match, but he has taken many opponents to close sets,” Coach Sulloway said. “Onlookers are often impressed with his ability to run and reach shots that, for most, would be winners.”

In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Adam 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.
