Classroom Champion - Ben Wolz - October 12, 2017

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Classroom Champions, presented by American Momentum Bank.

News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Ben Wolz. The College Station High School Senior has a 4.43 GPA, and is currently ranked in the top 3 percent of his class.

Sara Wendt – Teacher
“Ben's classmates always relate really well to him. You know one of the ways I see him in a leadership role now is in my Calculus class. He's always helping other students. He's always pointing out when something you know maybe when an answer should be changed. He's always paying attention and he's always helpful; the kids look up to him.”

Darryl Bruffett
Ben is a Captain for the Cougar football team, and he's also a member of the powerlifting team. Ben has received All-District Honors and Academic All-District Honors for his efforts in football. And in powerlifting he was a Regional Qualifier last season. Outside of sports, Ben is involved in the Orchestra as a String Bassist, the National Honor Society, Boys State and Making Cougar Connections (mentoring program). In his spare time, Ben likes listening to music and collecting ants.

Gregg Frashure - Coach
“I think it's impossible to talk about Ben and not discuss his work ethic. With a kid like him you'll never say, “Hey I wonder what Ben could've been. I wonder you know if we had gotten a little bit more out of him.” Whenever Ben is done playing, whenever Ben is done with high school here he's going to have reached his full potential. I've never seen him skip a rep, Ive never seen him run slow on a sprint, Ive never seen him cheat in the weight room. He does everything that we ask him to do.”

Ben Wolz - Student
“I know in football...My goal is always just been to push myself and do the most that I can do. And now I can kind of see that's rubbing off on my teammates. And I can see I lead by example through that. I think since freshman year, it's kind of been something that at first I didn't' really know I even did. I just tried my hardest to do the most that I could.

After High School, Ben plans on attending college and will major in Bio-Medical Engineering.

Congratulations to Ben Wolz of College Station High School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
