Player of the Week: Brennan Bass
Brennan Bass is a very hardworking kid. Even when he is dog tired, he still gives 100%.
“Brennan started the year as a midfielder and we had a need at defense and at faceoffs. We moved him to defense, but also gave him faceoff responsibilities,” Lake Region varsity boys’ lacrosse coach Josh Plowman said. “He takes the faceoff then goes to defense. He has really excelled at both, especially for a freshman.”
Brennan helped lead the Lakers to a 17-4 win over St. Dom’s with 11 ground balls and three assists, while dominating at faceoff.
Against Wells, he recorded three ground balls and won a majority of faceoffs in a 8-6 loss.
In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Brennan 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.
