Michael Smith, WJ | Scholar Athlete
Posted on October 5, 2016
Michael Smith, Senior at West Jones High School, was selected as a South Central Sports Medicine Scholar Athlete. Michael plays football for the West Jones Mustangs. After he graduates from West Jones in May, Michael plans to attend college to major in engineering.
Michael was asked what motivates his desire to excel on the football field. He responded, “I do not like to others down. My goal is to make All Jones County Honors this year, so I plan to look ahead to the coming year and learn from others.” Michael feels that his father, Mike, has taught him how to balance excelling on the football field and in the classroom.
South Central Sports Medicine presents the 2016-2017 Class of Scholar Athletes. Senior Athletes were selected by Athletic Directors of their respective schools. Athletes were selected based on their leadership on and off the playing field, their attitude of sportsmanship and grade point average. South Central Sports Medicine congratulates each athlete for their dedication to their sport and their school.
