Senior Luke Gay of the Fall Mountain football team was voted by readers as Sentinel Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 9-15.

The Wildcats quarterback went 7-for-9 for 151 yards and four touchdowns in Fall Mountain’s 42-7 win over Bishop Brady Thursday Oct. 14. Gay also ran for 66 yards. Three of his four touchdown passes were two classmate Brady Elliott, who had 115 yards receiving.

“He’s really evolved in terms of his confidence, especially this year,” said head coach Orion Binney. “He’s really blossomed.

“He’s been crazy impressive, and the best is still yet to come,” Binney added.

Gay received 577 votes (51.7 percent).

Wyatt Hutchinson of the ConVal football team finished second with 283 votes (25.3 percent). Hutchinson was a spark for the ConVal football team in its 50-14 loss to Kearsarge Friday Oct. 15, scoring both of the team’s touchdowns.

His first touchdown came on the Cougars’ first offensive play of the game — a 7-yard touchdown run — where he carried half the Kearsarge defense into the end zone with him to give ConVal an early lead. Hutchinson scored again to start the third quarter. He also made his presence known on the defensive side of the ball.

Zach Burgess of the ConVal boys soccer team finished third with 195 votes (17.5 percent) and Ellie Rupp of the ConVal field hockey team finished fourth with 62 votes (5.5 percent).

Burgess scored four goals in two games during the week, including a hat trick on Tuesday Oct. 12 in a 5-1 win over John Stark. He scored again during ConVal’s 4-0 win over Pelham Friday Oct. 15, and also had an assist.

Rupp scored the Cougars’ lone goal in the 2-1 loss to Milford on Tuesday Oct. 12.
