News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Colton Shelton. The Yoe High School senior has a 4.0 Grade Point Average, and he's currently ranked in the top fifteen percent of his class.
Colton was a member of the 2012 State Champion Yoe Football Team. He's also the starting third baseman for the Yoe Baseball Team. Colton was selected to the Academic All-District Team in football and baseball. He also was named Honorable Mention in both sports as well. Colton is very active at his school...He's a member of the National Honor Society, FCA, Football Leadership Council, and UIL-Accounting. Colton has also achieved academic excellence by winning the Y-Award and the Presidential Academic Gold Star.
"Colton is a student that is not afraid to work hard when hew needs to. And he definitely knows how to use the resources he has around him. He gets a lot of help from his teachers, a lot of help from outside sources. So he looks up when he has questions; he looks up the answers...And its just very resourceful...But at the same time, he's always got his homework in on time. He's always worked hard in class and is a great example of what students need to be."
"He's not only a leader here for the baseball team, he was on our state championship football team as a well as a receiver. And he's battled through a lot of injuries...He's hurt right now during his senior year, nut it's not keeping him down. He's encouraging. He's there for everybody, all the young guys...And just trying to help the team...And that just shows what true leader he really is."
"It's been something I've kind of had to work at. Make sure I stay on top of my classes, make sure I do my team justice and everything. I try to do my best in everything that I do. I try to stay on top of my studies as best as I can and do as best as I can out on the field too. My parent's are one thing that drives me. They've always pushed me to do my best. They always want me to do as best as I can. So I want to make them proud but also want to make my own self proud. If I can do that I feel successful."
After high school, Colton plans on attending Texas A&M University and majoring in business management.
Congratulations to Colton Shelton of Cameron Yoe High School. This week's News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
