  • Plans for after high school: I would love to attend Grand Valley State University and participate in their Premedical Studies program and become a doctor.

Abigail Hanchett is a junior from Waterford Mott High School who is in her first year as a player on the Waterford Mott Varsity Football team. She started as a soccer player for Waterford Mott and also plays for a club team (Waterford Warriors). Waterford Mott Varsity Football Head Coach Chris Fahr asked her to tryout and she immediately fell in love with football.

“I love playing football because it has challenged me and I have grown as a person,” said Hanchett. “The boys I play with have become brothers to me.”

In her first year, she’s had a successful onside kick against Wyandotte and mainly does kick-offs. She was also nominated for the favorite kicker and favorite junior categories in the 2022 4Frenzy Fall Fan Choice Awards. Waterford Mott finished the regular season with a 7-2 record and have an upcoming first round playoff matchup against Saginaw Heritage this weekend.
