Athlete of the Week: Carson Pickeral

DEXTER, N.Y. (WWNY) -

It started with a simple question in fifth grade: Do you want to play goalie?

Carson Pickeral answered yes. "I just fell in love with it," he'll tell you.

It shows. Carson is General Brown's boys lacrosse keeper, and he's having quite a season - 126 saves while giving up just 85 goals for a .597 save percentage. Over four years in varsity, he has 553 saves and, again, a .597 average.

Carson says “I’m pretty happy with the way things have gone.” He’s the 7 News - Watertown Savings Bank North Country Athlete of the Week for May 17. Click on the picture above this post to watch Carson in action, and see Mel Busler’s interview with him.
