Athlete of the Week for January Week 2
Bob Jones High School
A great student-athlete is not always defined by the number of things they do, but rather by the number of things they do well. Such is the case for our next Athlete of the Week for the month of January. This young man has narrowed his focus, and rather than try to be a jack of all trades, he prefers to be a master of one. Dustin Haraway may have started out his high school career as a dual-athlete on the football and baseball teams, but he quickly learned that the grid-iron was calling his name. This Bob Jones High School senior has moved up the depth chart on the football team each year. He made the Patriots varsity squad as a sophomore and was named Special Teams Player of the Year his junior year. As a senior, Dustin is captain of Bob Jones varsity football. His commitment to his team is the same commitment he carries with him wherever he goes; particularly in the classroom. Dustin has been a permanent resident on the A-honor roll for 11 years. He is a member of the National Honor Society and is near the top of his class with a 4.1 GPA. Dustin served as a campaign volunteer for the Madison City Council Race in 2004 and 2008 and for the Madison County Commission Race this past election year. He is devoted to his church as a member and volunteer and has certainly given back to his community in the way of clean-up efforts. Dustin sets a positive example for younger student-athletes by encouraging them to be great future leaders. Congratulations, Dustin!
