Ward’s Lawn Care Players of the Week

Listed below are the Ward’s Lawn Care & Landscape Co. Players of the Week for the week ending Sept. 11:


Name: Joe Daddario
School: West Geauga
Grade: Senior
Stats: Rushed for 292 yards on 36 carries and scored one touchdown in a 31-27 win over Padua
Coach’s Quote: “On top of his stats, Joe punched in a two-yard touchdown run to give the Wolverines the lead with 27 seconds remaining. Joe Daddario was a work horse this week and became a true leader when the game was on the line. Joe is a leader both on the playing field and in the classroom.”


Name: Justin Hamilton
School: Brush
Grade: Junior
Stats: Posted two shutouts in leading the Arcs to two wins and a draw last week.
Coach’s Quote: “Justin had 20 saves in three games last week. He had three shutouts in that week, more than we had all season last year. He has five shutouts total and that is more than we have had in two years combined. He made nine saves for the shutout against our rivals Mayfield. He was fantastic that game and the biggest reason why we had a draw against them. He also made four saves for a shutout win against a tough Mentor side.”


Name: Mykayla Askew
School: Madison
Grade: Freshman
Stats: Scored two game-winning goals in wins over North (3-2) and Geneva (1-0)
Coach’s Quote: “Even though she's a freshman, Mykayla refused to shy away from high pressure situations and scored both game winning goals in our two matches last week,” said Madison coach Chad Butler. “The second came off of a late free kick against our neighboring rivals, Geneva. Mykayla thrives on competition. Going against the best brings out the best in her.”


Name: Gia Cannavino
School: Mayfield
Grade: Junior
Stats: 47 kills on 96 attempts in nine sets (49{75938b698c062a5f9d56a28bed7ead9ebf7938f0edec05c365aaf340748e7078}), 32 digs, 24 service points and nine aces in four games (Mayfield was 3-1)
Coach’s Quote: “Cannavino is a dominant all-around player and force for Mayfield, even though teams plan specifically to stop her,” said Mayfield coach Rosella Glodkowski. “Despite that, Cannavino continues to excel and led Mayfield to a 3-1 week. She had 18 kills and eight aces against South.”
