Peekskill High School senior Birch Lazo Murphy is the Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 24.
A captain on the boys varsity soccer team, the senior has played several positions and had become the team’s defensive leader as the season came to an end.
As if that were not enough, Birch started and coordinated “Kicks for Cancer” to help raise awareness and donations in the fight against cancer.
Congratulations Birch, and continued success!
