Every week at least one athlete from each sport will earn the Gatorade G-Award/IMG Academy Athlete of the Week for displaying Heart, Hustle and Soul, and exhibiting a true desire to reach their true athletic potential.
The IMG Academy Lacrosse winner of the Gatorade G-Award/IMG Academy Athletes of the Week Award is Alex Ehrenstein from Boca Raton, Fla.
How long have you been playing lacrosse for?
Seven years, and I am 13 years old.
Who is your coach?
What is your favorite thing about IMG Academy and why?
The atmosphere. It’s like a college campus. You are free and have a responsibility.
Do you have any pre-game rituals that help you prepare for a big game?
I put on really thick sweat pants and a really thick jacket, then go outside in front of my house and just hit the wall for like an hour while listening to music. Then I go inside and I read.
What professional athlete inspires you the most?
What is your favorite thing to do after you win a game?
Go to the pizza place with my friends.
What motivates you to push through a tough practice?
Thinking about how much better I’m going to get after. I know that it’s going to be good in the long run so I try to do it as well as I can.
