Greensburg Tribune-Review athletes of the week: Greensburg Salem's Logan Davis, Greensburg C.C.'s Malea Fabean
School: Greensburg Salem
Claim to fame: Davis scored three goals to lead Greensburg Salem (2-1) to a 7-1 win over Ringgold on Thursday. Davis, who has eight goals this season, recorded a hat trick in a 4-0 win over Gateway on Nov. 1.
“I mean last week, I played pretty well,” Davis said. “My line played well, and I got a lot of opportunities and was able to capitalize.”
What are your college plans for next year?
I would like to attend Pitt where I think I will play roller hockey and not ice hockey. I'd like to major in engineering or actuarial science. Since I was young, I have taken advanced math, and I thought it would do something with math.
When you graduate, what do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be known for my hockey skill and that I manage to continue to do well in school. For example, this weekend I had to play 12 games in a tournament.
What sport would you play if you didn't play hockey?
I would probably say basketball. Basketball was the other sport I played until ninth grade.
If you were able to meet any NHL player, who would it be and why?
Most likely Sidney Crosby. He's my favorite player and he's on my favorite team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. He is the best player in the NHL. He seems to be a cool guy to hang out with.
What is one thing people might not know about you?
I would have to say not everyone knows I play roller hockey. I have been able to travel all around the country and all over Canada. I play on Team Pennsylvania in the State Wars.
School: Greensburg Central Catholic
Claim to fame: Fabean, a Pitt recruit, scored three goals to help WPIAL runner-up Greensburg Central Catholic (20-2) defeat Wilmington, 9-0, in the PIAA Class A quarterfinals on Saturday.
“I think we did really well. In the past week, we have been working on our defense,” Fabean said. “We tried to keep the ball on the ground and stay on the attack, which allowed us to score more goals.”
What made you decide on Pitt?
Ever since I was little I have liked that school. My dad went to Pitt. I would root for their football teams. Also, (former GCC keeper) Makenzie Shearson is currently on the team. I will major in biology when I go there because I want to be a physician's assistant.
What do you think happened against Shady Side Academy in the WPIAL championship?
I think they wanted it more. We came into the game a little cocky and they played like they wanted to win. They had the results, unlike us.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I want to go to Paris. It seems really pretty. I want to see the Eiffel Tower and it seems to be a really cool place.
What social media do you like the most? What celebrity do you like to follow the most and why?
I have a Twitter account. I like to follow Miley Cyrus. She seems like an interesting person. I just like her style and how she is different from everyone else.
