Athlete of the Week 9/24/16 - Azar Swain 17 - Rivers School- Football
Rivers School wide receiver Azar Swain '17 had an opening day to remember on Saturday, as the senior wide receiver tore up the gridiron, scoring five touchdowns, to lead Rivers to a 48-20 win over Dexter School.
He opened the scoring barrage for Rivers (1-0), by taking an 86-yard kickoff to the house.
The 6-foot-0, 175-pound Swain would respond again, with two additional early touchdowns, one through the air and one on a 40-yard rushing touchdown.
Swain's five scores (3 receiving, 1 rushing, 1 return) led all area players in the opening week of NEPSAC football and week three of Massachusetts play.
Swain totaled six catches for 136 yards on the day from his WR position.
Despite Swain's commitment to Yale University, to play basketball, Mass Prep Stars has always loved the gridiron star within.
Look for Swain's name, with many others on our much-antcipated, first release of our Massachusetts Prep Stars 2017 Football player rankings list.
Swain and Rivers will travel to Groton School on Saturday for a 3:30 p.m. ISL match-up.
