Athlete of the Week
Athlete of the week November 5th
The Athlete of the Week is sophomore David Silk. David is a wide receiver and cornerback on the football team. David has been playing football for three years and feels he is “experienced.” The football team practices everyday, but David takes it upon himself to practice during his own time as well. He balances academics and athletics by practicing good time management. If he could play against anyone, it would be against Jalen Ramsey. David’s inspiration is Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Football has become David’s passion, and he says that for students to strive to be their best, “they should keep working hard on and off the field.” David enjoys playing on the WHS Football team because of the supportive atmosphere and team culture. After high school, David would like to attend a Division I school, play football, and major in business. David’s coach would describe him as “hard working and coachable.”
