Wells High School senior Christopher Carney has been selected Athlete of the Month for September 2014. This award is in recognition of Carney’s academics, sportsmanship, and participation on the WHS Warriors Football Team as running back and linebacker on defense.

Presenting Carney with an Athlete of the Month plaque at WHS on October 30th was WHS Athletics Director Jack Molloy along with John C. Kreie of Cole Harrison Insurance Agency and Pamela Moody-Maxon of Moody Maxon Real Estate. Cole Harrison Insurance Agency and Moody Maxon Real Estate are sponsors of Athlete of the Month at WHS.

“Chris has worked very hard over the past few years and is very deserving of this award,” commented Kreie. “The time he spends on the practice field and the weight room bettering himself and his athletic ability is clearly paying off. Chris is not only a phenomenal athlete, but more importantly, a great kid who is very well respected amongst his peers and adults in our community as well as opponents.”

“It feels great to get this award,” said a modest Carney, who eagerly gives much credit for his award to his teammates. “I feel as if the whole team should get this award.”

Athletes picked to receive Athlete of the Month are selected by WHS’s Activities Director Jack Molloy and Principal Jim Daly.

After high school, Carney indicated that he would like to study for a career in law enforcement.

“He’s been my role model and hopefully I can fill his shoes,” said Carney about his father, who has been a police officer in Kennebunk for about 18 years.
