Player of the Week: Andrew Douglass

Andrew Douglass

Andrew Douglass didn’t start his senior football season quite like he wanted.

He started the season with an ankle injury that he fought through and subsequently accepted a reduced role that put him primarily on the offensive side of the ball.

“He has had great practices that have allowed him to develop his running technique, which is largely responsible for his strong running style and results.” Lake Region varsity football coach Brian Jahna said.

Andrew rushed for 171 yards against Gray-New Gloucester and helped established positive momentum and confidence in the entire team as the Lakers rolled past the Patriots 25-0 to spoil G-NG’s Homecoming game.

“He always has a smile on his face, responds well to coaching and is open to learning finer details of his position,” Coach Jahna added. “Andrew also provides strong senior leadership that provides strength to the overall football program.”

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