Athlete of the Week
The Powerland Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Andrew Early of the Treherne Tigers basketball team.
This 6’7” centre has helped led his team to tournament victories at the Treherne and Dufferin Christian tournaments, to go along with a third place finish in the MacGregor tournament. Coach Brandon Guenther states, “When you think of Andrew Early most people think of his height at a staggering 6 foot 7 inches. But there is much more to his game than just his height. Most games he plays the entire time and shows no sign of fatigue when he is on the court everything he does is for his team to win and not about himself. Amongst a team of fantastic basketball players he stands out as one of the best. He always puts everything he has into practice and games and plays one of the cleanest games of basketball a big man could play. Overall he is a huge asset to our team and one of the best in the zone and we will be sad to see him graduate this year”.
