For the fifth consecutive year, the Starr’s Mill sports programs will partner with Tim Monihan of Farmers Insurance in Peachtree City to bring forward a player of the week award. At the beginning of each week, Monihan will present this award to an athlete who has shown either exemplary effort in the classroom, leadership among his or her peers, or had an excellent performance in his or her respective sport.
“We care about this cluster of schools because they are local, they have great academic and sports reputation, and eventually, I will have my own kids attending Rising Starr and Starr’s Mill,” Monihan said.
After a week filled with games and practices, coaches of the sports that are in season will meet and discuss some of the top players who they consider worthy of this award. After presenting each respective athlete and why he or she deserves the award, the coaches will collectively select one student who will be named the following Monday and publicly recognized on Friday.
“The award is just something that will hopefully motivate the students to do bigger things in their life and also to continue playing the sport they love years down the road,” Monihan said.
Farmers Insurance is a nationwide company with a branch Monihan runs locally in Peachtree City. They primarily provide home, auto, golf cart, commercial, and life insurance and are considering implementing a discount for public servants.
“We are local and we care about the teachers and first responders who sacrifice so much to help improve our community,” Monihan said.
