Player of the Week: Lucien Wallace

Lucien Wallace

Lucien Wallace’s enthusiasm on the ski slopes is held in high regard by other alpine athletes, according to Lake Region Coach Scott Davis.

A three-year member of the squad and co-captain, Lucien participates in many extracurricular activities and still finds time to participate in sports.

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