Athlete of the Week: The Very Young Jackson LaCava

LaCava wants to be a hockey player when he grows up. He's three, and he already knows this. Who knows, could be true. Didn't Tiger Woods know he wanted to golf at that age?

As the Youth Program Coach at Nichole Hallett coaches more than 100 kids in different sports each week. Some of them stand out, and one, in particular, she feels should be "athlete of the week."

LaCava attends Miss Tanya's Preschool in Westborough.
