VIDEO: Interview with Lasanna Brew
Middletown running back Lasanna Brew is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week.

In his first season as a starter, Brew scored 16 touchdowns in the regular season as the Cavaliers earned the No. 2 seed into Friday night's semifinals against No. 3 Sussex Tech.

Lasanna says he worked hard over the summer to earn his success this year.

"This summer I worked on hitting the hole fast, being as explosive as possible. I worked on conditioning with the MCS. I just focused, I had a goal of doing great things, and that's what pushed me to do well."

Lasanna Brew works hard, but teammate Erich Schneider says Brew's value is in more than just carries and yards.

"He's one of the funniest guys on the team. He makes sure everybody's up, and even if somebody's down, he's joking around making sure (they're okay). He knows when to turn on that switch and get after it during the play."

Brew says he's glad to bring that aspect to the team.

"That's just my personality, that's how I've always been. That's just me really, I like smiling and having fun."

Lasanna says he's driven to succeed in part by one of his biggest fans who doesn't get to see him play often.

"My dad, he's in Georgia. When he came for two games this year, he's so proud to see me do well. It pushes me to do my best, and I really want to make him proud."

Brew and Middletown host No. 3 Sussex Tech Friday night at 7:30pm inside Cavaliers Stadium. You can hear the game on WDEL beginning at 7:05.
