Stayton High School Athlete of the Month for February
Boys’ basketball player Garrett Callsen is the Stayton High School Eagles Athlete of the Month! Callsen leads the Eagles in scoring and rebounding averaging 17.5 points and 12.3 rebounds a game. The Eagles are 15-6 overall and currently sit in third place in the always tough Oregon West Conference. With two games remaining in league play, Stayton will almost surely make the postseason. How far they advance in the playoffs will depend on the matchup they face, where they have to travel, and Callsen. Garrett is a nightmare matchup for most teams. He can dominate in the paint and also step out and shoot the three; but the best thing about Callsen is that he is a great kid! He is a fantastic basketball player but an even better human being, and that is what makes him a terrific choice for the February Stayton High School athlete of the month.
This was a difficult month to choose just one athlete. All of the nominees are wonderful kids and accomplished athletes. Liberty Wiseman for swim, Leo Michel for wrestling, Kenzi Hollenbeck for girls’ basketball, Natalie McKim for dance, and Kyra Gunn for cheer are all tremendous nominees. We have superb kids and great athletes at Stayton High School!
