State Farm Student Athlete of the week

Today we went to Adrian to award Senior Colton Bass with this week’s State Farm Student athlete of the week. Colton was nominated by his Coach Jacob Weeks after his performance last week going 6 for 8 with a double, 4 RBI’s, 4 runs scored, 2 SB’s and one of those hits being a walkoff 2 run homerun vs Butler at the bottom of the 7th. Clinching the win in a big district and rivalry game. Colton plans on attending Missouri Southern in Joplin in the fall to play football and major in accounting.

When we asked Colton what he has learned from playing sports that he can apply later in life he said “leadership skills and being able to work with other people.” He says “to become an elite athlete it takes dedication and the right mindset.

You have to go in every day and give it your all to get better.” Colton said one of his favorite memories from sports in high school is the big hit against Butler at the bottom of the 7th.

We are so happy to award Colton this week and wish him and the Adrian Blackhawks the best of luck as they play in post season games.
