WELLS - Wells High School senior Tyler Bridge was recently honored as “Student-Athlete of the Month." He received this distinction for a combination of his academics and sportsmanship as a running back and cornerback with the WHS football team, winners of the 2018 Class D state championship.
“It feels pretty good,” said Bridge about receiving the award. On November 17 in Orono, the Warriors won the D state title against Foxcroft Academy 55-20. In that game Bridge scored a game-changing five touchdowns and tossed a pass for another TD.
“Tyler is the best football player in the state of Maine,” commented Head Coach Tim Roche. “He set school records for rushing 2,390 yards and scoring 45 touchdowns. He was an outstanding defensive player with four interceptions. On top of all that he is fifth in his class and a member of the National Honor Society, Student Council and Interact.”
Presenting Bridge with the Student-Athlete of the Month plaque was WOSD Director of Athletics 6-12 Pierce Cole, Pam Moody-Maxon, and John C. Kreie.
The Student-Athlete of the Month program is sponsored by the Cole Harrison Insurance Agency and Moody Maxon Real Estate. Kreie represents Cole Harrison in co-presenting the Student Athlete of the Month Award at the school.
