Basketball’s Sean Mercer named Athlete of the Week

Written by Lexie Hunter – Newspaper Staff Reporter

This week’s Athlete of the Week is Sean Mercer. Sean has been playing basketball since he was two years old. He was picked as Athlete of the Week because of his hard work and consistency. Coach Phillips says, “Sean’s dedication this fall throughout conditioning has been tremendous.  His positive spirit and consistent effort are helping drive all our Bucs in the right direction.  Every day Sean is pushing not only himself to be better but also all our Potential Buc Ballers.   We expect Sean to play a valuable role this season, especially on the defensive end as one of our defensive specialists.  As a fan, you’ll love Sean’s passion and desire as he represents Allatoona Basketball this upcoming season.” Sean’s advice to younger players is, “keep working no matter where you are in your career because it will show, and to stay humble.”
