Patrick Young is the model of consistency on the rugby pitch. In every single game he dominates at the breakdown and creates turnovers.
The Grade 12 student from Derby Line, Vt. leads the forward runs, makes countless tackles and manages the field like the experienced veteran he is. The most knowledgeable player on the pitch, Patrick was an obvious choice as captain of the Senior Boys Spartans. He makes the players around him better, and works hard to make sure everyone feels a part of the process.
In fact, every one of the qualities mentioned above was on full display this past weekend at Rugbyfest, the biggest event of the season held annually in Rothesay, NB. Patrick not only led his team to an undefeated performance in the Bonneycastle Division, bringing home the Banner for the second straight year, but he was the leading contributor to the positive, inclusive vibe that made the tournament memorable in more ways than just victories.
Congratulation, Patrick, on a well-earned Athlete Of The Week!
