This week’s Athlete of the Week is a study in perseverance.
Despite dealing with a serious injury these past six weeks, this first-year Spartan from Gatineau, Quebec always stayed positive and never stopped working. This mindset finally paid off when Benoit, Grade 11, returned to play ten days ago, and since then he has improved each and every day. Calm, cool and collected, it took very little time for him to become a force for positivity among his teammates. There is still a ways to go until full recovery, but with his determination and outstanding work ethic, it’s only a matter of time. Congratulations, Benoit, on a well-earned Athlete of the Week!
