LAKEVILLE, IN. – When coaches think about a team player, there are several qualities they may look for.
Always reliable, communicates with confidence, does more than asked, adapts quickly and easily, and displays genuine commitment. To be a great team player, you don’t have to be extroverted or indulge in self-promotion. In fact, great team players sport all kinds of personalities.
In our latest feature series, we asked fall coaches for the student-athlete that is not necessarily the MVP, but the one that is a team player, has that great attitude, does well academically, etc. – A Team Work Recognition Honor.
Our latest recipient of the www.lavilleathletics.com Team Work Recognition is girls soccer player Kassi Watts.
“She is a player who improved quite a bit this season, especially during the second half of the season.” LaVille girls soccer coach Daniel Pleninger said of freshman Kassi Watts. “She is a player who never quits and looks to do the little things correctly. She would always ask for ways that she could improve at her position and she would actually attempt those adjustments in a game or at practice. She would never complain and always looked to put the team first. She started the season as one of my first subs off the bench, but because of her initiative and attention to detail, worked her way into the starting lineup.”
