ROCKTON – Hononegah senior quarterback Ryan VanSchelven is our new Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Rock Valley College. VanSchelven has guided the Indians to a 4-0 record and a share of first place as the high school football season approaches the halfway point. He led the Indians to a conference title last year, and has bigger goals for this season.
“I was far from perfect last year,” VanSchelven said. “I still am far from perfect, but knowing I have the trust of my teammates is the number one priority. Because without that, you can’t really get very far.”
He earned that trust with his dedication on and off the field. VanSchelven gets it done in the classroom and on Friday nights, and hopes to keep playing on Saturdays deep into the playoffs and next year in college as well.
