North Attleboro senior Connor Ruppert has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for April 18 through April 24. Ruppert is the 27th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the third of the spring season.

Ruppert has played a major role in North Attleboro’s strong start to the season, including the winning goal in a double overtime, non-league thriller against Silver Lake. In North’s games last week, he scored 13 goals and added six assists, and now has over 45 points on the year. The Rocketeers are 6-1 on the season, with the only loss coming against Franklin, have the early lead in the Davenport division, and won four games last week. Ruppert, a senior attacker, has been the team’s leading scorer through the opening stretch of the season.

“Connor has really taken on a leadership role for us this year,” said North Attleboro head coach Kevin Young. “Even though we’re playing him at attack this year, he’s probably our best short stick defender too. He’s been great with the younger guys on the roster and it’s been a ball to watch him take charge.”

North bounced back from its first loss of the season by going on the road and winning four straight. It started with an out-of-state trip to Bishop Hendricken and a 14-8 victory followed by a short trip to Attleboro and a 14-11 win on Tuesday. Two days later, North visited Silver Lake and pulled out the 17-16 win in two overtimes. Ruppert had four goals and two assists in the game and had the winner when he took a pass from Clayton Billingkoff, split a double team, and found the back of the net. The next day, North was back in Attleboro to face Bishop Feehan and scored another dramatic OT win. Ruppert led the way for the Rocketeers with five goals on the day.
