Blossom Queen is Athlete of the Week

This week's Loaf 'N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week not only has the skill on the soccer field, but also has the looks on the stage.

Emily Hoffman was the 2012 Canon City Blossom Queen. She is also a four-year letter winner for the tigers.

she has been selected all state twice and all-league four years running. the senior is attending the University of Kansas and going to Austria this summer to represent her country on the pitch.

And for her, there's just something about the game that she can't give up.

"I love how everybody has to be working together and everybody has to be on the same page," said Hoffman. "And just watching it all come together, it's a rush. I mean, being able to beat ten other people, plus the keeper, to get a ball in the net, it's really fulfilling. The best sound in the world is the ball rolling down the back of the net. I just love it"

Emily also carries a 3.96 GPA, the third best in her class. She graduates later this month.
