BRATTLEBORO — Ever since Valentine’s Day, Jack Pattison has been feeling the love.

The junior forward, who was nominated after scoring four goals and dishing out one assist in the Brattleboro ice hockey team’s 10-0 rout of Northfield, received 136 votes from Feb. 15-21 to earn Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors.

“This young man is awesome both on and off the ice!” Lisa Bourbon McKenney jotted down on her online ballot.

Pattison was named an Athlete of the Season in 2019-20. He paced the Colonels with 20 goals and 22 assists as a sophomore.

He and Twin Valley Nordic skier Luke Rizio were the first two winners this winter. They are both in the running for a $25 prize from The Marina.
