Athlete of the Week: F-M's Donovan Welsh

FAYETTEVILLE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - For our latest Athlete of the Week— Fayetteville-Manlius senior Donovan Welsh— the game of lacrosse has a deeper meaning to him. 

Last season, Welsh’s father tragically passed away.  Not a game goes by that Donovan isn’t reminded of the special bond that he shared with his dad.

“It’s different this year looking over the sideline and usually saying hi to him and him not being there. That reminds me and it makes it easier to get the motivation. I have a lot to play for,” Welsh said.

His play has been nothing short of spectacular, helping F-M to the section title a year ago.  This season, Welsh and the Hornets have picked off right where they left off.

“Donovan has matured over the several years that I have had him. He has always had good skills and a good competitive nature. I think what he understands now is that one person can’t do it. It is the team. He is a good leader. He has good composer and I think he brings that to the team. I think the other fellas want to be that same way,” coach Chris Kenneally said.
