Each week, two GPRC Wolves athletes are selected for their achievements over the weekend on the field, track, or court. We are pleased to congratulate Rui Vale and Alex Verhun from the Wolves Men and Women’s Soccer teams as our current Athletes of the Week!
It is a pleasure to have Rui return for his second year to represent the Wolves. Hailing from Portugal, Rui brings his creative talents to the field. Rui is graceful with a wonderful first touch, close control and tremendous vision. He also has a wicked shot with both feet.
Rui leads by example on and off the field. He is well respected by everyone connected with the soccer. He has a quiet demeanor but has a burning desire to succeed in the game.
Alex is in her second year with the Wolves and played an important role in last season’s success. A quiet and unassuming leader, Alex earns the respect of everyone with her phenomenal work-rate on the field. Alex leads the team with her play on the field. She competes for every ball, wins tackles and creates when in possession and continually showing tremendous stamina. Alex also possesses a super shot.
Off the field, Alex is an ideal student-athlete. Mature and balanced in all that she does, Alex always shows humility, respect and integrity.
Congratulations Rui and Alex!
