Nutrilait February 18

Nutrilait player of the month - February

The Nutrilait player of the month, a program presented by Nutrilait, is an opportunity for Academy coaches to put forward and reward a player from the U14 and U15 group that distinguished himself, each month. The selection is based on athletic, academic and community criteria that tale into account the player’s efforts, progression, perseverance and involvement. Another important point is the player’s capacity to show initiative and leadership with different actions within the club or the community, all the while respecting the values of the Impact Academy.

The player of the month will have his photo displayed by the Centre Nutrilait locker rooms and will get a $200 gift card at Evangelista Sports.

U14 Nutrilait player of the month
Thomas-Nikolas Anastasopoulos

“Thomas’ performances in games and practices were fantastic in February, just like his attitude, his concentration, his competitive spirit and his work rate,” said Impact U14 head coach Eduardo Sebrango. “His consistency was remarkable for a young player, but I’m not surprised since he works hard on his weaknesses every day in training. Thomas’ leadership qualities are evident in every drill, practice, or game.”

U15 Nutrilait player of the month
Abdul Binate

“Abdul is one of our players born in 2003 that recently joined the Academy. Despite his humble beginnings, he showed a lot of potential for progress and he listens and applies the advice we give him,” said Impact U15 head coach Serge Dinkota. “In the month of February, he showed consistency in his performances, he progressed on the field and showed leadership qualities in his communication. With his positive attitude, Abdul has the behaviour of a high-level young player, which is what we want to see at the Montreal Impact Academy.”
