I’d like to go back to this guy today because he hasn’t gotten the recognition he much deserves for having such an outstanding season.
Consider that he is a freshman – yes, just a ninth grader with virtually his whole career ahead of him. As he heads into Saturday’s regional after a 15th place finish in a talent-studded sectional, we can reflect on a inaugural season that has produced 9 top 10 finishes in invitationals or big meets.
He was ninth in the County Meet and ninth in the TEC meet, good for all-county and all-conference honors.
He’s a good one – a star who is only going to get brighter.
He is a Union City Indian.
His name is Conner Walser.
