Player of the Week: Colin Bridge-Koenigsberg

By Wayne E. Rivet

Colin Bridge-Koenigsberg won’t win a lot of cross-country running races, but he has won the true respect of his coaches with his hard work.

“Colin is someone who strives for individual and team improvement,” Lake Region varsity coach Dan Dors said. “He is someone who we, as coaches, can always count on to be at practice and to do what is asked of him.”

Coach Dors says the LR senior is well liked and respected by his teammates, both boys and girls.

“Colin is a reliable person and is a pleasure to coach,” Dors said.

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