Athlete of the Week: Marlborough senior Jason Levine

Sprt AOTW M Jason Levine_CROP

“I’ve had both a special coach and teammate during my time at MHS. My first coach freshman year was Tom Leopre, and his coaching style was unique and unparalleled by any other. A compliment from him was always a rare commodity, but that only made kids want to work harder to earn one. When kids would come off the courts during a match, he would sternly ask, ‘Do you know what you’re doing wrong?’ in his signature voice tone, and if you didn’t know the answer to that question, you’d receive a detailed explanation. As for a particular teammate, my doubles partner Yuuki Sato has always had my back for the three years that we’ve played together. He would always know when I wasn’t playing to my full potential, and would let me know. We’ve always been within one spot of each other on the ladder, so hopefully that will keep me on my toes this year, and push me to my full potential.”
