School: Mill Creek

Sport: Lacrosse

Class: Senior

Highlights: Had six goals and four assists in an 18-4 win over Brookwood

Coach Alan Tallman’s take: “I spent quite a bit of time evaluating players in our program upon my arrival (beginning in August). Willie’s commitment to becoming a better athlete and lacrosse player in the offseason, along with having an overwhelmingly positive influence over his peers, made him an obvious choice for captain when we named them before the season. Willie loves lacrosse and is a very naturally talented player. What makes him special is that he is eager to become an even better player. He comes to work with a purpose every day and has a knack for making his teammates better. Willie’s not the most boisterous guy on the field, but he leads by example and that’s usually more important than words. Statistically, he’s gotten off to a pretty hot start this season, so I’m excited to see him continue to develop in our system and contribute to a very memorable season for himself and his fellow seniors.”
