State Farm student athlete of the week

State Farm of Butler is excited to announce this week’s State Farm student athlete of the week from Butler, Junior Brendin Patrick. Brendin had an outstanding performance last Friday against Adrian with 288 yards on the ground with a total of 3 touchdowns. He participates in football, wrestling and track at Butler all while maintaining a 3.41 gpa in the classroom. Brendin was nominated by Butler’s athletic director Jake Duvall.

He stated “as a junior, Brendin has turned into a leader both on the field and in the school. He shows great character and is willing to help out at any given time.” When we asked Brendin to describe in his own words what it takes to become an elite athlete he stated “it’s what they do behind the scene when no one is watching that sets them apart from the rest”.

Brendin states his goal after high school is to obtain a four year degree and play football or wrestle in college. We want to congratulate Brendin and wish him and the Bears the best of luck with the rest of the season.

They take on Sherwood tonight at 7 p.m. Pictured from left to right Kellie Davidson, State Farm; Brendin Patrick son of Mike and CJ Patrick; Butler Head Football Coach Gregg Webb.
