Lacrosse’s Hart Shaw named Athlete of the Week

Written by Madeline Gamblin – On the Plank Staff Reporter

Our Athlete of the Week this week is Hart Shaw. Hart is a Senior at Allatoona High School and has been playing lacrosse for nine years. “He is extremely coachable, always is encouraging to his teammates, and always has a positive attitude. He plays a huge role in the team’s offense and is extremely clutch,” said Head Lacrosse Coach Jonathan Wishon. “I was picked for Athlete of the Week because I’m always positive on the field and always try to encourage others no matter the situation,” says Hart. His favorite memory while playing Lacrosse at Allatoona is “coming back from 1-6 against Harrison and winning 7-6.” Hart’s plans after high school include going to Kennesaw State for Business and Film, and he has hopes to carry on NEXT STEP, a clothing business he created to inspire people to keep taking steps forward in their life. His advice to younger players is to “Enjoy the times while you can…Work hard and treat your coaches with respect at all times.”
