State Farm Student Athlete of the week Miami Senior Nick Dusenberry

We are excited to announce this week’s State Farm Student Athlete of the week, senior Nick Dusenberry from Miami. Nick plays basketball for the Miami Eagles. He was nominated by his head coach Devyn Hair. Nick had a very good senior season. He reached the milestone of getting his 1000th point and was a key attribute for the Miami Eagles. We asked Nick what he liked about being a part of a team sport.

He stated, “it's like a family. I love getting to win and celebrate with them. There are so many fun times between the team dinners and other things we do throughout the season.” We asked him to state what it takes to be an elite athlete. He replied with, "a lot has to do with their personality.

They have to be likable. However, they have to have a good work ethic. You need to be able to put work in outside of practice and when nobody is watching." Finally, we asked Nick how does being an athlete make you a better person. He said, "it builds hard work, discipline, and time management. You gain a lot of great skills." After high school Nick plans to attend welding school in Nevada. We want to congratulate Nick and his team on a great season!
