Under Armour Menís Basketball Athlete of the Week Ė Week 7
ALEX SOMMERFIELD • GREEN RIVER
SOPHOMORE • GUARD-FORWARD
Alex Sommerfield, Thomas Jefferson HS / Federal Way, WA., averaged 18.5 points and 8 rebounds per game to go his 2 assists, 3 steals and 4 blocks as Green River knocked off 2nd-ranked South Puget Sound and 8th-ranked Lower Columbia. Sommerfield is also an excellent student and sports a very high GPA.
"Alex shot the lights out in both games, said Gator head coach Godfrey Drake. "In both games he got rolling from the 3 point line and the other team had to call timeout. He also came up with big blocks at the end of both games to seal the deal."
Drake added, "Alex is great on campus and he is in to broadcast journalism. His sports podcast is very well done and he has a bright future with that. He also led our efforts in the off season with several trips to NW Harvest to do some community service. The sky is the limit for Al and I’m just lucky to be the guy that he calls coach."
