WELLS –Wells High School selected Jake Moody as Athlete of Month for January 2014. This award is in recognition of Moody’s academic abilities, sportsmanship, on and off the field, and athletic skills as displayed as point guard for the WHS Warriors Basketball Team in January.

This award is sponsored by Cole Harrison Insurance Agency and Moody Maxon Real Estate. WHS athletes picked to receive this honor are selected by WHS’s Activities Director and Principal.

“It feels great to be picked Athlete of the Month,” said Moody upon receiving the award on March 19th. Moody indicated that it is a “great honor” to be listed along with previous recipients of this award formerly sponsored at WHS by Liberty Mutual.

In 2012, Moody was selected as Liberty Mutual Athlete of the Month for January. Back then in just nine games, Moody scored 190 points averaging 21.1 points per game.

Presenting Moody with a plaque on the 19th was John C. Kreie of Cole Harrison Insurance Agency and Pamela Moody-Maxon of Moody Maxon Real Estate.

“I’m not sure I have seen a kid work as hard as Jake,” commented Kreie later. “He is a lot of fun to watch play the game and was the nuts and bolts of this year’s basketball program. He is one of the best high school basketball players in the State of Maine and, more importantly, is a very well-mannered young man.”

After graduation from WHS, Moody says that he wants to go to college to study finance and accounting. He has yet to pick a college, but wants to attend a Division III school so that he can continue to run track or play basketball. Jake Moody is the son of Peter and Judy Moody of Wells.
