Athlete of the Week | Connor Wood '20

Week of Dec. 4 - 10

Connor arrived to Cushing from St. Albans, Vermont this fall and he has made an impact on the Varsity Boys’ Hockey team.  He is a highly skilled and physical player who has established himself early on as an offensive threat with a strong combination of skills, power, and skating.  Connor plays with great intensity and his early production has earned him a spot on the power play.  His heart and desire on the defensive side of the puck round out his game.  Connor’s early season production includes his four goals and an assist last week, with his first Cushing hat trick vs. Brooks.  Connor will also be a contributing member to the Cushing Baseball team in the spring.
