Teammates of the Week
Each week, Student-Athletes, Coaches and Faculty can nominate someone they feel is a great teammate for the past week.
The week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday at midnight. The list will be collected Monday of the next week and published to all the coaches and faculty members at Middletown area High School each Tuesday.
What makes a good teammate? Multiple reasons!
Here is a great quote by Kobe Bryant that can help sum it up:
"I'll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it's sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot."
The Blue Raiders instill the following leadership qualities P,R,I,D,E. When nominating a fellow Blue Raider, please list one of these qualities in your description.
P-erseverance, R-espect, I-ntegrity, D-iscipline, E-xcellence
Xavier Engleton, Indoor Track, Grade 12 - Honor
“Xavier is a great mentor in the hurdles. He is always looking for places to give tips to the rest of us, using the knowledge he has gained from his own training. I wouldn't be where I am now without him.” ~ Jeff Bowerman
Johnny McGrain, Soccer, 10th - Courage
“Johnny is always encouraging everyone on the team to get better. Even when there are players that don't play as much he tries to encourage them to work hard and not give up on playing time as one of our captains.”
~ Owen Campbell
Erin Hill, Varsity Field Hockey, 12th – Perseverance
“Erin has worked hard each day to improve and it definitely shows every time she makes a huge defensive stop on the field. She embraces her role whether it's on the sideline cheering on her teammates or make great plays on the field. Erin has a lot of contagious spirit and it’s fun to see it spread to her teammates.” ~ Coach Slavin
