Tate Olson of the New York Mills Boys Basketball team is the Olson Oil Company Athlete of the Week.
Olson had a monster game against Verndale on Tuesday night with 40 points, 16 rebounds and 3 assists to lead the Eagles to a 69-59 victory.
In the Eagles 75-33 win over Sebeka on Friday, Olson had another double-double (23 points, 12 rebounds) as he reached the 1,000 point milestone.
“Tate is a very gifted basketball player who has put in his work,” stated New York Mills Head Coach Jason Boe. “He can score anywhere on the court and his court vision is second to none. He probably could have reached the milestone sooner, but he often gives up good shots to set up his teammates for better shots. We are extremely proud of him.”
