Rochelle senior tennis player Noah Griffith is our WREX Athlete of the Week. Griffith has made the trip to state in each of the past two years and looks to do so again his senior season.
"In the last twenty years, he’s been our best player in the program, by far," longtime Rochelle tennis coach Jeff Truckenbrod said.
Griffith comes from a tennis family, which explains some of his success on the court. But his drive to be great keeps him going through tough days of practice.
"I set my standards pretty high, and so do my parents because I’ve played so long," Griffith said. "[I’m} trying to impress them but also set goals for myself."
Griffith also played golf and basketball for the Hubs. This spring, he wants to finish his career on a high note.
