WAND Sports introduces a brand new segment, Athlete of the Week presented by Midwest Technical Institute!

Each week, sports director Gordon Voit, Mark Pearson and Orlando Toatley put the spotlight on a local high school athlete who is excelling as a student and community member as well!

To submit a student-athlete's name, please send a detailed list of his/her accolades to Gordon Voit on Facebook or via email at Gordon.Voit@wandtv.com.

Week 1: Jeffery Wells (MacArthur football)

Week 2: Jackson Hogan (St. Teresa football)

Jackson, a senior lineman for the Bulldogs, broke the school squat record (635+ pounds) and ran out of room on the bar for more plates! But it's what he does off the field that makes him special. AP student. Richland credits. Kairos leader. Side hustle: car detailing. Jackson hopes to become either a business man in the agricultural realm or a veterinarian.
