Athlete of the Week – STM’s Gregory Mahtook


The St. Thomas More Cougars have one of the most potent offenses in the state, but… what makes an offense so good… is a stellar defense.  And that is where we find this week’s athlete of the week… Gregory Mahtook is one of the most versitale players on that side of the ball… and Gregory’s quick to give credit to Cougar Defensive Coordinator Terry Tidwell.

SOT — ” our defensive coordinator terry tidwell always has us in the right spots. he’s seen it all, so when that happens he puts us in a position to make the play.  and when we get it done, it all works out for us!”
SOT- STM DC Terry Tidwell – ” Gregory’s got a lot of range.  He can play defensive back, linebacker or strong safety, and he’s been able to do that in all three positions, in every game this season…”

And if it all works out for the Cougars this season, they will be in the dome playing for a state championship, but, Greg says staying focused on the next opponent, is what will help them get to that goal.

sot- ” we just take it one week at a time, and we just focus on a win, then a win, then another win,  And, hopefully by the end of that… we’ll be in the dome.”

STM has a big non-district test on Friday night, when the host the Catholic High Bears from Baton Rouge.
