    Greenwich junior Freddie Bancroft has been named the MSG Varsity's FCIAC Player of the Week for Nov. 4-10 by a panel of athletic directors and MSG Varsity reporters.

    Bancroft played the starring role in the Greenwich Cardinals’ 2-1 overtime upset of the previously-unbeaten Wilton Warriors in the FCIAC semifinals last Tuesday in New Canaan. Bancroft, the Cards’ goalie, racked up 14 saves, many at point-blank range and earned MVP honors. With the win, Greenwich earned a share of the FCIAC championship.

    What's your biggest athletic goal for 2012-13?
    Bancroft: "My biggest athletic goal for next year is to improve as a player and as a teammate."

    Who is your favorite teammate and why?
    Bancroft: "I love my entire team and we all became really close this season, and I am really going to miss everyone now that it is over."

    What's the best piece of advice you've received?
    Bancroft: "The best piece of advice I received was 'make a decision and stick with it' and 'a positive attitude is contagious.'"

    Which athlete is your biggest influence?
    Bancroft: "There are two athletes that have influenced me this year. Over the summer I met the goalkeeper for the US olympic team. She was really inspiring. Also, I worked with Mary Beth Freeman, an accomplished goalie and college coach, who taught me a lot over the summer when I attended her camp."

    What's your proudest accomplishment away from the game?
    Bancroft: "My proudest accomplishment away from the game is working with my brothers to raise money through an organization called BuildOn to build a school in Haiti in honor of a girl in our town who died. We are helping break the cycle of poverty through education."
