    August Student Athletes of the Month

    Gabriella Andino (Volleybal)- “Gabby is an outstanding volleyball player, a hard worker and leader. She is dependable on and off the court. Gabby can be placed anywhere on the court and play any position. As a Senior she has definitely shown the underclassmen how to be a model Student-Athlete”.

    James Woods (Football)- “James is an outstanding student-athlete. He is always on time, and carries himself with the upmost respect. He works hard on and off the field, and will help anyone that needs any kind of assistance. That’s how he Carrie’s himself off the field, and on the field he takes care of business. He leads the team in tackles and tackles for loss. If we need someone to field other positions, he is the first to jump in and kick, punt, wherever you need him. James is a stellar athlete, that checks all the boxes as a student-athlete. For all the reason stated above, I believe James Woods should be the August Student Athlete of the Month. Go Pack!!!”
