Austin Lufkin of Brewer High School has won the McDonald’s High School Athlete of the Week with 42 percent of the total vote over Morgan Dauk of George Stevens Academy and Riley Swanson of MDI.

Lufkin set a new record at the UMaine New Balance Field House this past weekend in shot put.  He took home a new Eastern Maine Indoor Track League record with a throw of 59 feet and 8 inches in the five team meet.  The throw was the best in the state for indoor track this season and one of the top marks overall in the country.  Lufkin is also a semi-finalist for the Gaziano Award for lineman in high school football

Lufkin took home the vote with almost 750 total submissions this week.
