Sheboygan Christian/Lutheran junior Tony Schmitz has been selected as the RallyAroundUs Athlete of the Week for the week of November 1-7 after a statewide vote on WisSports.net.
There were 4,544 total votes this week. Schmitz topped all vote getters with 1,593 votes. McDonell Catholic came in second with 1,463 votes.
Schmitz was exceptional in goal for the Sheboygan Christian/Lutheran soccer team. He began the weekend with a 2-0 shutout of SJNMA in the state semifinals. Schmitz then didn't allow a goal in 110 minutes of regulation in the D4 state title matchup with Oostburg. He had seven saves and two more during the shootout which Sheboygan won 5-4. Not only did he make the saves in the shootout, but Schmitz made the winning penalty kick to break the tie and win the match. Schmitz' overall play was a big reason why the co-op took home the program's first gold ball.
Schmitz was named to a First Team All-Big East performer earlier this month.
