MS Boys Lacrosse Player of the Year: Austin Pelletier, Messalonskee
Junior played pivotal role in midfield for Eagles.

...He’s the quintessential ‘Center X’ player, the type of player who can change the game by doing many of the little things that may go unnoticed — winning face-offs, playing the body in midfield defense, scooping up ground balls and starting the counter-attack.

“It’s not just the goals and assists in lacrosse,” Pelletier said. “It’s banging the ball around, making that second pass — the ‘hockey assist.’ It’s setting screens for each other, creating some space in the offense. That was a big thing for us this year — trying to get other people the ball. We were talking about all the seniors who had graduated, and we knew we had to step up a little bit and get some more goals. I think that was one part of it for me.”
