BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - This week's Duffy's High School MVP of the Week goes to Boca Raton's Community High School senior Marc Daniele, middle line backer/full back and captain.
He's proud to also be the captain of the defense. "I just enjoy to push kids and motivate them to follow me."
Coach Lewis Burnham nominated Daniele. "Just the energy, the way he's an emotional leader with our team. It just inspires the guys on the team to see a guy like Marc to persevere through everything."
Marc's reason for loving the game of football is truly touching. "You know, I lost a parent of mine. It means a lot to me to be successful on the field and do a lot of good things and get praises for this sport because, you know, she's watching over me. It means a lot to me because I know I'm doing something good for her."
