A+ Athlete: Hunter Savage, Silo
This Week's A+ Athlete is Hunter Savage of Silo High School. Hunter is a 4 year member of the Varsity baseball team, helping the Rebels to win two state championships. Even though he already has two rings, Hunter still isn't satisfied, and he wants to bring another state championship to Silo.
"That's the greatest feeling in the world," said Savage. "Being in that dog pile, it makes you want it more. I think that's what adds to our success."
"It's not easy to be a good player, it's not easy to be a good student athlete," said Silo head baseball coach Billy Jack Bowen. "So he's really had to work at that, and put in time to be as successful as he is."
Even though he is a two time state champion, the class room is where he really knocks it out of the park. Hunter is currently ranked number one in his class, he is a member of the Beta Club, and he is the president of his senior class.
"Being disciplined, and having good character, what character means to you," said Savage. "I think applying good character and discipline into the class room will help you excel. It's mainly so I can be the best that I can be. To be the best in school, to be the best on the field."
"He has character, he has self determination, he has a drive to be successful," said Silo history and government teacher Sheila Long. "For a teacher, to have a student that bring all of those qualities to the table, it just makes it super, super easy."
