Concordia sophomore Brandon Mayo (Tesoro ’15) is the Athletes Choice Workhorse of the Week. Mayo led Concordia to its first-ever Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association Division 2 National Championship by averaging just over a hat trick per game at the MCLA Tournament last week.
Mayo scored at least three goals in each game of the tournament and ended the week with 13 goals and two assists. His performance earned him a spot on the All-Tournament Team and recognition as Commanding Performance of the Week powered by Under Armour.
“Brandon has one of the most deceptive and electric shots I have ever seen,” Concordia coach Ryan Brent told MCLA.us. “When he works within our offensive system it is next to impossible to stop him. I am really proud of his performance this week and all season long.”
Athletes Choice owner Nick Tintle coached Mayo throughout his high school career and continues to work with him on his conditioning. Tintle thinks that Mayo’s love for the game and work ethic are the cornerstones of his success.
“Mayo is a kid that always wants to get better,” Tintle said via text message. “He is a student of the game. He probably knows how to string up every type/style of pocket and he probably knows the stats of every D1/pro lacrosse player past and present”.
“What he didn’t know is that consistent training off field would help set him apart. He came to me two years ago and asked what are some other things he could do to take his game to the next level. We put him on a training regimen/program and Brandon started to get stronger, faster more agile, and overall it lead to more confidence on the field. I think the confidence is really what he needed to excel and I think the hard work in the background unlocked his hidden potential.”
