Jack Allen Wins Student Athlete of the Week Award
Covenant Day School junior soccer player Jack Allen has
been named the Architect Sports and Physical Therapy
Student Athlete of the Week. On the soccer field, Jack plays
striker for his school team and mid attack for his club team.
The 16 year old also plays basketball and lacrosse for fun and
to stay in shape.
Jack earned a spot on the varsity soccer team at Covenant
Day School as a freshman and helped his team to win the
conference championship in the 2013-2014 season. His
favorite memory from that year is a last minute header goal
to help the team beat Hickory Grove. Jack’s role on this
year’s team is to play off of the center midfielder, Julius Klohr, and make runs
through the opposing backline to open up space and put himself in a position to
score. In only 5 matches this season, Jack has tallied 11 goals and 2 assists.
Jack is a strong student who records all A’s and B’s in the classroom and earned
a position on the Covenant Day School Honor Roll. Jack will soon begin working
alongside a special needs school to help them with biology labs and he will
partner with a student there to help in the biology learning process. Jack hopes
to play soccer in college following his graduation from Covenant Day School.
