Mansfield senior Jake Wall has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Dec. 13 through Dec. 19. Wall is the 12th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the first of the winter season.

Wall got off to an impressive start to his senior season, winning three events in each of Mansfield’s first two dual meets. The University of Michigan-commit and defending state champion in the long jump, won the 55-meter hurdles and long jump in both meets, while also taking first place in the 55-meter dash against Attleboro and the high jump against Taunton.

“Jake has had an outstanding start to the indoor track season winning all six of his events while also breaking the school’s indoor long jump record,” said Mansfield head coach Kevin Butera. “Jake has developed into a real triple threat at the conference and state level as a sprinter, hurdler, and jumper with top marks in the Hockomock 55M, 55M hurdles, and the long jump.”

Wall got his season kicked off with three first-place finishes against Taunton, helping Mansfield win its opening dual meet at Wheaton College. He won the 55M hurdles in a time of 7.95, the high jump with a height of 5-04.00, and the long jump with a leap of 22-03.00. Four days later, at the Reggie Lewis Center, in a loss to Attleboro, Wall won three events again. He won the long jump in 21-10.75, the 55M dash with a personal best of 6.85, and the 55M hurdles with another personal best of 7.89.
