Drew Muzzey: Laconia Male Athlete of the Season


Wednesday, June 27, 2018

What was the biggest challenge you or your team faced this season and how did you overcome it? Our biggest challenge this season was coming together and playing as a whole. For the first few games our offense and defense had a hard time playing in unison. We were able to overcome this by coming into each game with better energy and being more prepared for each game.

Who was the unsung hero of your team? I would say that the unsung hero of our team would be Steve Towers. Obviously his talent in net is noticed in each game. However, what may not be as well known is his ability to take charge and unite our defense. He was the anchor of our team this season.

If you could improve high school lacrosse in New Hampshire, what would you do? To improve high school lacrosse, I would switch up different teams in the divisions. It seems as if some of the competition is a little weak in certain areas. I would also make a move to improve youth lacrosse around New Hampshire so that when kids get to high school they’re more familiar and better prepared for higher level lacrosse.

Do you have any sports superstitions? If so, what are they? The one sports superstition that I really have is with my game socks. Every season I choose one pair of socks to wear on game day and I wear them for every game of the year.

What are some of the unwritten rules of your sport? One unwritten rule of lacrosse that comes to mind involves the tilt of a player’s helmet. You can’t come out on the field with second-bar syndrome or you’re just going to have a bad day.

Who on your team, coaches included, reminds you of a character in a TV show or movie? There’s this one kid on our team named Derek who looks strikingly similar to Chicken Little. One of our attackmen Bailey Moore definitely looks a little bit like Gumby.

If life were a video game, what would some of the cheat codes be? I would snap my fingers and I’d have a million dollars. I’m not really a video game person, so if this seems like a superpower I’m sorry.

What is something that is really popular now, but in five years everyone will look back on and be embarrassed by? Some of the mumble rap that’s popular right now. I’m pretty open-minded when it comes to music, and I support most musicians, but some new rap music is just awful.

Where do you get your news? I’m not really one to watch the news. I may occasionally watch it with my parents, but for the most part I focus on sports news and I primarily use Bleacher Report for that.

What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made? Best purchase would have to be a pair of Vans Authentic. They go with everything, they last forever and they’re comfortable. My worst purchase would definitely be the several Apple Watches that I’ve bought and sold immediately after realizing they’re pointless.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know? A paper cut is more painful than a regular cut because there is either very little blood or no blood at all, which leaves the nerve endings open to be disturbed by the air.

What’s invisible but you wish people could see? Each other’s emotions. I feel like so many conflicts could be solved if everyone knew what one another felt. This may also be a bad thing though as I’m thinking about it...

If you could go to school in a foreign country, which country would you pick and why? Germany. Love the culture and I really want to go see all of the different sights there.

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest? Horses. I hate horses.

What questions would you like to ask a time traveler from 200 years in the future? I’d mostly focus on asking them about newer technology.

If you were hired to show tourists what life is really like where you live, what would you show them / have them do? I’d show them the lake and just spend a day out in the boat fishing. I love the lake.

What is the craziest thing one of your teachers has done? I didn’t see it, but our lacrosse coach Andy Paronto jumped out of a window.

What's the best thing about being a teen? What's the worst? The potential and ability to choose what our future will hold. Sometimes we aren’t always motivated.
