Player of the Week: Brian Brooks

Brian Brooks

Brian Brooks

Some athletes claim to be team players, but Brian Brooks regularly proves he is one.

“Brian has shown positive senior leadership by being open to playing new positions (offensive line and linebacker), hustling during practice, and supporting the younger players on the team,” said Lake Region varsity football Coach Brian Jahna. “Brian had one of his best games against Fryeburg, playing at full speed each play, getting to his correct assignments, and using correct technique. He picked up his teammates when they began to struggle and doubt themselves.”

In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Brian is this week’s Boosters Club 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.
