Classroom Champions - Cade Hawley

It’s time now to crown another Classroom Champion and this week we congratulate Cade Hawley of Lexington High School.

News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Cade Hawley. The Lexington High School Senior has a 4.4 GPA, and is currently ranked number two in his class.

“Cade is a phenomenal young man. He's pretty much the perfect mix between student and athlete. I would say in thinking about Cade and comparing Cade to other people his age...He is exactly what we want every kid in America to turn out to be. He works hard, he's focused, he's dedicated and driven. He's excellent! And I don't know, I can't say enough about how great he is.” says Emily Smith - Teacher

Cade plays football, basketball, and baseball for the Eagles. On the gridiron, Cade has been named First Team All-District as well as Honorable Mention All-State. And in baseball, Cade was named first Team All-District as a First baseman last season. Outside of sports, Cade is involved with the Student Council, FFA (Future Farmers of America), UIL, the National Honor Society and the National Technical Society. And in the classroom, Cade has received the Outstanding Student Award in Chemistry, Physics, and Geography.

“Well, I think they feed off of him because they see an offensive lineman kind of getting after it in the trenches. And getting downfield...fitting on defensive lineman and then running his feet. Cade's a kind of a guy, he's athletic for a big guy so he gets downfield and has those pancake blocks. You know out there where they can all see it; so all this kids...it kids them all excited and everybody wants to try to do what he does.”, says Kirk Muhl, Coach.

“I work as hard as I do because I really want to just be successful. I want to have that life later on. So I figure if I learn it now it will be easier later. My freshman year, I kind of learned I would get to be a bigger guy. So I figured I would work really hard to see if I could go somewhere to do something with it. And most places you can't go unless you have the grades too, so I decided to work really hard and focus on it.”, says Cade Hawley

After High School, Cade wants to attend the West Point Military Academy in New York. And hopes to further his football career there as well.

Congratulations to Cade Hawley of Lexington High School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
