Thomas Noble has a lot of Laker pride and school spirit.

“He is enthusiastic at meets and extremely supportive of his teammates,” Lake Region indoor track & field coach Mark Snow said. “Thomas focuses on improving every meet and has great success at setting personal records (PRs). He has 19 PRs over the past two seasons. That is the most on the boys’ team.”

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

Parents: Tom and Sue Shaw

Sports you play: Football, indoor track, outdoor track

School honors: Merit

Why did you choose to play this sport? I chose football because, well, it’s my favorite sport. I chose indoor and outdoor track because I like to compete against other schools that I know and that I don’t know, from the starting gunshots and my teammates cheering when I finish.

What is the most difficult part of the sport? The rules I have to follow, and also the weather outside (cold breeze to hot spring days) that I have to face.

What do you enjoy the most about the sport? I enjoy the competition I had on the track and the huge crowd during football when I recovered a fumble against Freeport.

What do you feel you need to work on? I need to work on more serious stuff at practices; no goofing off so I can achieve my goals.

Why is teamwork important? We work together to achieve on goal, to be successful and also good sportsmanship.

What is the biggest impact your coach(es) have had on you? I feel that my coaches are great. They made me the greatest and powerful athlete on the field and on the track. I’m proud of the coaches and their hard work.

How do you want people to view you as an athlete? I think I’m a great athlete for LRHS. I’m spiritual, strong and successful. I loves sports since I was a little kid in Portland (my birthplace).

Ten years from now, when you look back on your high school sports career, what do you think you will remember most? I think I’ll remember when I made a lot of tackles and defensive plays in football; and competed in events in indoor and outdoor track. Let’s do our job, Laker style (my catch phrase).
