Player of the Week: Taylor Davis

Taylor Davis

As a goalie, Taylor Davis has been strong commanding and leading the Lake Region defense.

“He is a kid who was converted from midfield to goalie early in the season due to a team need there,” Lake Region varsity boys’ lacrosse Coach Josh Plowman said. “His goalie form and ability to make routine saves has improved tremendously.”

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