Glen Ridge High School senior Maxwell Thompson has earned the 2017 Investors Bank Best Teammate Award. Max, along with 29 student-athletes from schools in the Super Essex Conference, were recognized during ceremonies held at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center. This year, Max was the captain of the Ridgers’ varsity basketball and baseball teams. Coaches selected him for the Best Teammate honors because he is a selfless player who arrived early for practice, worked hard and always supported his teammates.
