Player of the Week: Drew Spaulding

SP drew spauldingDrew Spaulding pushes himself and his Lake Region varsity boys’ lacrosse teammates to work hard and goes out of his way to acknowledge a good play, says Laker Head Coach Don White.

“He plays with a high intensity every game, setting the tone for the defense by letting the other team’s best offensive player know he’s in for a very long day,” the coach said.

Coach White said Drew had some very impressive take-away checks and dominated ground balls.

“Many of his ground balls end up being fast breaks at the other end of the field,” Coach White said. “Drew has been really fun to coach this year, and he always seems to have a smile on his face.”

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

Q. Best piece of advice you have received? DS. Play for the love of the game.

Q. Who is your biggest fan? DS. My mother. She has never missed a game and has pretty much watched me play through a camera lens.

Q. I know I have had a good sports day when… DS. I get a good night’s sleep.

Q. What is your favorite sport? DS. Lacrosse.

Q. What qualities make for a good teammate and whom do you consider a good teammate? DS. A good teammate is one who contributes to the team by hyping up the team. I consider RJ Legere a good teammate. This was his first year in goal and having no prior experience in a goal, shut down key players from around Maine. RJ’s leadership and attitude are — in my opinion — characteristics of a player of the week.
