This senior boy rugby player from Tsurumaki, Japan was a leader on the field from start to finish. Playing in every single minute of the GMAA 7s tournament last week, Shun Hatano was instrumental in every success the team had over the day. He is the kicker, the play caller and takes all the penalties. For his consistent performance, he was recognized by the organizers as the tournament MVP. He followed that up with two more gutsy performances the next day at the opening RSEQ jamboree. Only in Grade 10, Shun plays the game the right way and loves his teammates. A student of the game, he has a bright future ahead of him. Congratulations, Athlete of the Week, Shun Hatan.
