Devyn Hatch

Devyn Hatch is a dedicated, hard worker.

“Always at practice and willing to do any work out with a positive approach,” Lake Region varsity cross-country coach Dan Dors said. “Devyn — with his work ethic — has the respect of Coach Peterson and myself; also his teammates.”

Devyn always strives for individual and team improvement, the coach added. Only a sophomore, the coaches look forward to coaching him for two more years.

“No matter what the workout is, Devyn is always upbeat,” Coach Dors said. “A pleasure to coach.”

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

  1. Why did you choose cross-country? I chose this sport because I like to run and see myself improve and get out what I put in during practice that week.
  2. What is the most difficult part? I think the most difficult part is crushing any self-doubt when you are on the starting line because that will just hold you back in the race.
  3. What do you enjoy the most about the sport? I enjoy the fact that on our close-knit team, we are all friends and we all support each other during practices and meets.
  4. What do you feel you need to work? I feel I need to work on just keeping ahead of schoolwork.
  5. Why is teamwork important? If you don’t work well as a team, you can’t expect to get better at what you do.
  6. What is the biggest impact your coach(es) have had on you? My two coaches always expect the best of me and they always push me to do my hardest and give my all.
  7. How do you want people to view you as an athlete? I would like people to view me as a nice teammate and a good athlete.
  8. Ten years from now, when you look back on your high school sports career, what do you think you will remember most? In 10 years when I look back on my high school cross country adventures, I think I will remember Coach Dors and Coach Peterson following me on the “gator,” encouraging me to do better.
