Congratulations to Laurel Burkhardt for being recognized as Hoover High School Player of the Week. Laurel is a Senior Volleyball player at Hoover who brings a zeal to the court that is infectious to others around her.

Laurel has been recognized as a member of the HHS Volleyball: Final Four 2018 State Tournament team and a part of the NASA South Volleyball: 9th in 17’s Gold Club.

She is still making a decision for life after high school but has narrowed her college choices down to Sewanee, Birmingham Southern, Franklin, and Marshall. Congratulations Laurel and keep up the hard work.
