Archmere rugby started just three years ago, and now they are winning big matches. Auks head coach believes that one player in particular has been instrumental in the success of the program. John Trusello is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week.

John's thoughts on watching this program grow:

"It's been fun to watch. When we first started we didn't know what was going on but as the years went on - getting more and more people in, now we're playing fifteens. It's awesome."

Head Coach Andrew Cocco had nothing but positive words to say about this senior:

"He has done everything we ever asked of him and more. It doesn't matter if we've asked him to play a position he's not comfortable with, he'll jump in. His favorite word is yes, whatever you need, and he plays to 100% of his ability, I think he plays beyond his ability level. If you look at him he works harder than anyone on this team."

What John wants people to know about him when he steps on the field:

"I'm going to give it my all every single time I go out on the field."

When this senior leaves, the Auks head coach hopes that the younger gentlemen take after John's work ethic:

"I would hope that he leaves behind his work ethic, his determination, his fearlessness. He gets out on the field and faces guys who are bigger than him, faster than him, he finds a way to work with that and win."
