State Farm Student Athlete of the Week

We are so excited to announce this week’s State Farm student athlete of the week Colton Bass from Adrian. Colton is a senior and plays Quarterback and Defensive Back for the Blackhawks. He was nominated by his coach Matt Davis. In his last outing against Knob Noster Colton went 6-11 passing for 188 yards and had 12 rushes for 149 yards. 

On defense, he had an interception and all of this he achieved mainly in the first half of the game as the starters only played one drive in the second half. Adrian went on to win 38-8. Coach Davis stated “Colton has been a cornerstone to our team the last three years. He is a two time all state selection and is active in our school in numerous clubs and activities.” When we asked Colton to describe what it takes and how you can spot an elite athlete he stated “you can tell who the leaders are by those who are vocal and leading the team by example. 

And it takes lots of hard work and training to excel and refine the skills you need to succeed in your sport.” Colton states after graduation he hopes to continue to play football at the collegiate level. It was a pleasure meeting Colton. Adrian will play at El Dorado Springs tonight at 7 p.m. Good luck to Colton and the rest of the Blackhawks!
