poll: Who is the Best Athlete from Orange-Sturbridge?

Who is the Best Athlete from Orange-Sturbridge?


Any time a list includes major league players, Olympic Medalists and a body building champion, picking the top athlete is going to be tricky. But that is just where we find ourselves on day four of GoLocalWorcester's unveiling of the best athletes ever from Central Massachusetts.

Headlining the group, at least in terms of recent accomplishments, is Sterling's Jay Cutler. The massive body builder has taken home four Mr. Olympia titles, body building's top honor, with his most recent conquest coming in 2010. This hulk may be tough to beat, but John Fitzgerald was powerful player himself. The Southbridge native started at center for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1970s when the club was named "America's Team." Dallas earned the distinction, and Fitzgerald led a stellar offensive line that propelled the Cowboy to a pair of Super Bowl victories.

Laurie Bellivean of Southborough has a full resume as well. An All American hockey star at Yale, Bellivean went on to represent her country on the U.S. National Women's Hockey Team from 1991 to 2000. Another Central Mass native with Olympic ties is Fred Borchelt. The Shrewsbury native earned Silver at the 1984 games as a member of U.S. Crew.

Finally, Shirley's Jerry White played 11 major league seasons, mostly with the Montreal Expos. White has stayed around the game, however, as he is now the first base coach for the Minnesota Twins.

Now, we want your opinion; Who is the best athlete ever from Orange-Sturbridge?
