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.
