What are the Messenger Sports Awards? We thought it would be fun to highlight some of the athletes who stood out to us in ways that may not have appeared on a scoresheet. The selections will reflect the teams each reporter/photographer spent the most time covering. 

Reporter/photographer: David Laroche

David covered lots of basketball this winter at all five high schools; he also caught a few MVU hockey games. David was a catcher during his three seasons on MVU”s varsity baseball team and went on to play baseball at Lyndon State College. He lives in Highgate with his wife Amanda, their daughter Maddie, and two dogs, Marcy and Lincoln. David works in marketing for A.N. Deringer and enjoys photography, running, hiking, and modding his 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser.
