Athlete of the week

The athlete of the week is Branson Mitchell. Branson is a great kid. He works hard both academically and athletically. In football, he is leading the state in rushing yards, with a lot of help from his front offensive line blocking for him. He works hard in practice and has become a visual leader on the football team. His dedication to the sport is extremely high and has grown tremendously over the 3 years that I have coached him. Academically, Branson works very hard. He has become a National Honor Society member and has realized that academics is vital for him to reach his goals after high school. I am very proud of Branson and all the football boys that have made the sacrifice to come out and play football. GO BLUEJAYS! Enlargephoto
