The Little Caesars Player of the Week – Madi Jarvis
11 months ago Andrew Luberda 0
County Line Preps is pleased to have a sponsorship agreement with specific Little Caesars locations in Queen Creek and Coolidge.
Little Caesars, home of the Hot-‘N-Ready pizza, will sponsor the Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards as part of our agreement.
Each week, CountyLinePreps.com will announce the Player of the Week, accompanied by a Q&A with that week’s winner.
The Player of the Week will receive a gift certificate, redeemable for a two-liter bottle of soda, a pepperoni or cheese pizza, and an order of Crazy Bread, that will be honored at one of the two aforementioned Little Caesars locations.
Additionally, the Player of the Week automatically qualifies for the Player of the Month Award, which will be determined by a poll that will be posted on our County Line Preps Twitter account during the final week each month.
The Player of the Month will receive a plaque and a $25 Little Caesars gift card.
Now that we’ve provided details of both awards, we are pleased to announce this week’s Little Caesars Player of Week:
Benjamin Franklin – Senior
5’ 6” Setter
Madi led the Chargers with 454 assists, which accounted for nearly 80 percent of the 574 of the team’s total assists for the full season.
In a three-set sweep of Globe on Senior Night, Madi led the Chargers with five aces and 16 assists in just two sets played.
The No. 6-seeded Chargers were upset in the first round of the 3A State Playoffs, but that doesn’t prevent us from naming Madi our Little Caesars Player of the Week, ending Oct. 27.
Her famous initials are just a bonus.
County Line Preps: You were one of several seniors honored on Senior Night. Can you describe your emotions from that night? What were you thinking about?
Madi Jarvis: I really can’t believe that I am a senior. I didn’t really feel like volleyball would ever end. I have had the wonderful opportunity to play varsity since 8th grade, so I can’t imagine life without it. I love these girls, and the seniors I have grown up with most my life. I couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of such an amazing program with incredible people.
CLP: What was the key to the Chargers having a successful volleyball season?
MJ: I believe volleyball is 80 percent mental and 20 percent actual skill. If we keep up a positive attitude come out with confidence, the skills will show themselves and we will win. We had all the tools to win, we just needed to make sure we had that mindset. (More times than not) we did.
CLP: What are your plans after graduation?
MJ: After I graduate I am serving an LDS mission and then going to college somewhere in Utah.
CLP: What is your greatest athletic memory at Benjamin Franklin High School?
MJ: I have way too many great memories here with the athletic program that I could not just choose one, so I think I’d have to choose the most recent. A couple weekends ago we went to Florence High School for a tournament and we came first in the Gold Division. We worked so hard and I have never been more proud of my team. I saw the fight in each one of my teammates, and I had full confidence we would come home with a win because we had the mindset, strength and fight to do anything we wanted in that moment. We learned a lot about each other and ourselves that day. We learned how to fight for something we want and to work hard. This team has taught me things I couldn’t have learned without these experiences. I am glad I will be able look back at these moments (for inspiration) when things start to get hard, not (only) on the court but in life as well.
CLP: What is your favorite sports movie and why?
MJ: My favorite sports movie would definitely have to be Forever Strong. I love the storyline and how the main character starts off as a bad kid, but then has to work hard to become who he wants to be.
CLP: Name one person you’d most like to meet and why?
MJ: I would love to meet the BYU volleyball team and just play with them for one game. That would be so much fun.
