Athlete of the Issue: Jesse Studebaker

By Wyatt Lester Posted December 14, 2011

Jesse Studebaker, a junior at Lowry, is a student-athlete who participates in many athletic events for Lowry High School. He participates in Football, Basketball, and Baseball and his sports career has spanned from T-ball as a child to playing his first year of football this year.

“Sports kept me out of trouble and kept my grades up,” said Studebaker. “I like to work hard and I like the challenge.”

Jesse’s favorite sport out of the three he plays is basketball and he has played since the fourth grade.

“Basketball’s the most fun and I’m more dedicated to it,” he said.

His accomplishments in basketball include a runner-up title at state last year and he plans to help lead the team to a state title.

“I think we’ll have a good team in basketball this year. Were young but were the most talented this year and were smart about everything.”

His baseball years started when he began T-ball. As a freshman, he was the starting third baseman for the Bucks. He also pitches, but saw limited action last year due to injury. He is a great part of the team and hopes to help take Lowry to the playoffs this year.

Another sport that Jesse plays, more recently started to be correct, is football. He played wide receiver on varsity and helped take the team to the playoffs this year.

He has a few years left in sports but he has done well so far.

He said he wants to play basketball or baseball somewhere and looks forward to his senior year.

When asked to give advice to future athletes Jesse said, “Don’t do drugs and don’t goof off when you have the chance to do something great.”
