Athlete of the Week 2-4-22
Ferrer took home the 2A-4 title in both traditional and snatch lifting at 183 lbs. She lifted 175 lbs for her bench and 185 lbs for her clean in traditional, and 125 in snatch. She will represent the Seahawks in the 2A State Championships.
“When I get to the bench, I just envision myself lifting up the weight. I try not to think about how heavy it is or the amount of weight, just to lift and push. My goal has been to win at states for the longest time, so I just keep that end goal in mind.”
The guard averaged 23 points per game in three wins for the Red Knights, including two 25-point performances. His best game came against Oasis where he added seven boards, five assists and six steals.
“I went into last week with a different mentality knowing that we were down players, so I knew I had to step it up and do my part. I’ve worked the most on the mental part of my game, basketball takes not just a lot of physical skill, but a lot of mental skill.”
