The Tire Recycle Urban Athlete of the Week is Paolo Racano of the Miles Macdonell Buckeyes volleyball team.

This 6’3” opposite hitter helped lead the Buckeyes to a silver medal at the Boston Pizza Provincial Volleyball Championships.  He was named the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba Players Choice Award winner and led his team in their quarter-final victory with 28 kills and a kill efficiency of 64%.  Coach Tim Au states, “Paolo is a very dynamic attacker.  He is a big leaper and attacks at all different angles. Paolo hits a heavy ball and is difficult to defend against.”

In grade 12, he maintains an 80% academic average, while also participating in basketball.
