Northwood high school sophomore Michael Bellas is the MaxLaxOC.com boys’ lacrosse player of the week. The 6’2”, 180-lb dual-sport athlete (football and lacrosse) is currently the leading goal scorer in California and second nationally for the 2015 season (44) and goals per game (5) per MaxPreps. Bellas has lead Northwood to a 6-3 start this season.
Head coach Zeff Dena is clearly impressed with his well rounded sophomore “Michael scored 75 goals last year as a freshman and is on pace to break that record this year. He’s pretty tough to stop when he gets going. I sometimes have to remind myself that he’s only a Sophomore! He also started at wide receiver this year before a collar bone injury cut his season short. He carries a 4.0 GPA and is a member of his Sophomore Class Council. He’s an amazing player and person with a very bright future on and off the field.”
