Be a Mensch
This week we have two “Mensch” players of the week.

Team Uriel had their first win of the season this week. Ensuring that his team would achieve that first sweet victory, Sammy Mellman scored not once but twice in the second half to put the game away. For helping to give his team a win through his tenacity, smart play, and overall teamwork, Sammy Mellman is one of the two "Mensch" players of the week.

The second “Mensch” player of the week is the youngest player in the league. Though playing against boys that are bigger, stronger, and faster than he is, this player never gives up. Coach Frankl of Team Michael gives this special player an assignment every game and this player completes each assignment successfully each week. Even though he has not scored any points for Team Michael , he is a critical piece and one of the major reasons why Team Michael has not lost a game yet this season. We can only imagine how he will do in years to come against players his own size! The second “Mensch” player of the week, along with Sammy Mellman, from Team Michael, is...Yizchok Singer.
