Winton Woods eighth grade student KC Spears, a member of the middle school’s football team, has been named as the district’s Skyline Student Athlete of the Month for November. Spears not only performed well on the field but in the classroom, receiving a 3.7 GPA for the first quarter.
“This season he played several positions for the Warriors,” said Winfield Franklin, WWMS teacher assistant. “One of these positions included him stepping up to be our emergency quarterback along with playing running back, outside linebacker and cornerback. He excels in each position, has a very high football IQ and is very coachable. KC is like a coach on the field.”
