Top Five 2012 Senior Athletes
by Sam Barrett-Cotter on Friday, June 8th, 2012
This past week, I had the chance to sit down with five of Milton’s elite senior athletes as they finish up their Milton careers. These Mustangs will be taking their talents to the collegiate level where they will undoubtedly represent our school very well. Each leaves big shoes to fill, and their presence on campus, as well as on field, will be sorely missed. These athletes are Devaughn Holliday (Football), Rob O’Gara (Ice Hockey), Brighid Noone (Ice Hockey), Jane Ghublikian (Softball), and Brooks English (Baseball).
What is the greatest athletic accomplishment you and your softball team have had in your time at Milton?
Definitely our win against Nobles this year. We won 2-1. At one point they had [the] bases loaded with no outs. The team probably hasn’t beat Nobles for the past 10 years. That’s probably an exaggeration but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was true. Before the game on Friday, Nobles was tied for the ISL title with Governor’s and we (obviously) knocked them out, which was unreal.
Varsity Ice Hockey, Field Hockey, and Lacrosse
What is it like playing 3 different varsity sports?
I came to Milton only having played hockey and I picked up field hockey and lacrosse mostly because I wanted to be on a team with my friends and to try something new. These past four years I’ve come to really like the variety of the 3 sports though.
Varsity Football and Lacrosse
What is your role as a captain in terms of the team, and then in terms of the school as a whole?
As a captain, I am the leader of the team both on and off the field. I help my teammates better themselves as football players. I also set a good example off the field, whether during team outings or around the school.
Varsity Hockey and Lacrosse
What do you feel is a student athlete’s role at Milton or at other high schools?
Giving the whole school something to come together for. Everyone can come together and rally around a team representing their school and become excited and into school spirit by rooting for their fellow classmates.
Do you feel you have left a mark on the MA baseball program?
Hopefully. The only thing I hope I left was a sense of hard work. That’s all anybody really needs to succeed in anything in life I think. Last year, Captain Erik Jacobsen (‘11) left a lasting image of the insane hard work he put in, so this year we copied him. Hopefully, next year the younger guys will copy the hard work that the seniors put in.
