2019/20 Athletes of the Week
October 7-11, 2019
School: Harford Tech
Grade Level: Senior
Allison is a versatile player, that dominates the field in any position. Her coach, Matt Berg, credits her as being a large reason why their varsity girls soccer team has only given up 3 goals so far this season. As described by her coach: "She's shy on the exterior, but roars like a lion on the interior, demanding nothing but greatness from herself both on and off the field. She leads by working her butt off and encouraging others to do the same. Allison has no issue making humble, quality choices - when no one is watching - both on and off the field as a captain of a team with 10 powerful seniors, as well as in her challenging courses." We are more than impressed, way to go Allison!
