Player of the Week: Kolin Wyman

Kolin Wyman

Kolin Wyman faced a tough task when he walked onto the soccer field this fall. He was asked by Coach Michael Chaine to fill in as the center midfielder — a “critical” position.

“Kolin continues to mature into a leader of this team in the center of the field and has one of the strongest shots, making him a threat to any opposing goalie,” Coach Chaine said. “Kolin pushes himself at all times in both practices and games. He has become one of the ‘look to players,’ both by myself and his teammates.”

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