State Farm Student Athlete of the Week

We are so excited to announce this week’s State Farm student athlete Junior, Mason Diehl. Mason starts as safety for the Butler Bears and also plays offensively as a wide receiver. Mason was nominated by varsity Head Coach Gregg Webb. Webb stated “We had a lot of holes to fill after losing so many seniors last year, and when Mason was placed in one of those spots he has really stepped up and made the most of it. He is athletic and is not afraid of contact.” Mason had two receptions for a total of 125 yards and one touchdown in the big game last week against Warsaw. Both teams were going into that game undefeated and it was an important game for conference and district standing. Mason also had several stops on defense with big tackles last Friday night and helped the Bears get the win. Mason when asked what is something he can take away from playing sports and apply to later in life stated “that when you set your mind to something you can accomplish it.” When we asked what it takes to become an elite athlete he stated “he really feels it is the hard work you put in during the off season that makes a difference.” Mason is still undecided what his future plans will be after graduation. We want to congratulate Mason and the Bears on their successful season thus far. They are currently 7-0 and play at El Dorado Springs this evening at 7 p.m. Go Bears!
