GET READY BLEACHER BOY FANS! This week’s Athlete of the Week goes to…

Bella Plaut!!  Bella is a 3rd grader at Fort Lee Public School who is a determined basketball player. She plays point guard for the Fort Lee Basketball League and made their all-star team for the first time this year.  Her game really improved from last year.  Bella went from scoring no points during the previous season to scoring 3 baskets during this one.

Bella is fresh off a playoff win.  Her team won their first-round game Monday night in overtime, 7-5.  Bella contributed to this victory by making an awesome assist on the first basket scored and having an excellent steal against the opposing team’s best player with a minute left in overtime.  We wish Bella and her team continued success in their post season play.

On top of basketball, Bella loves gymnastics and softball.  She looks up to Olympic Gold Medalists, Gabby Douglas and Simon Biles.  She also loves New England Patriot, Tom Brady and Red Sox, David Ortiz.  Congratulations and welcome to the huddle!
