Congratulations Jacob Noel, Smoky Mountain Lacrosse's Player of the Week!
Smoky Mountain Lacrosse has selected West Knox junior F/O middie (Face Off Mid-fielder) Jacob Noël as the Knoxville Player of the Week. In wins over Centennial, Farragut, & CAK, Jacob won 44 of 56 face-offs (76%) and grabbed 31 ground balls. According to lacrosse-information.com, there are four main positions in the sport of lacrosse: Attack, Midfield (Middie), Defense, and Goalie. Middies are the heart of a good lacrosse team. From taking face-offs, to scoring goals, to playing defense, mid-fielders do it all. Next time you see Jacob serving at the Cathedral as an Acolyte, be sure to congratulate him on his success in the mid-field.
