The Drink Up Jewish Link Sportstar of the Week: Jack Abrahamson

The Jewish Link and Drink Up would like to recognize Jack Abrahamson as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. Jack is an eighth grader at the Yavneh Academy. In addition to collecting the TABC Jr Hockey Sr League championship, Jack picked up a Playoff MVP and First Line All Star awards earlier this month.

When asked about Jack, Yavneh Hockey coach Yaniv Besterman told The Jewish Link: “Without question, Jack is the hardest working person on the team and has really grown into a skilled hockey player and mature leader. Every day he puts in extra work, both on and off the court, because he knows that by doing so, he’s helping the team. He is very committed and loves what he does. He is a great team player; he makes everyone around him better as well.” TABC’s iconic coach Mo Fuchs added, “Jack is an extremely enthusiastic and passionate player who keeps improving his level of play.”
