Two games, two game-winners.
Hinckley-Big Rock forward Tyler Smith led a pair of Royals victories, scoring a hat trick and assisting on another goal in a 4-3 win against Stillman Valley on Saturday. He also had the first goal in a 3-0 win against Princeton on Thursday.
Each week, the Daily Chronicle asks our Athlete of the Week the same five questions, and gives them the chance to ask a question for next week’s winner.
