Wade Jostes has indeed made mistakes this football season, but you'd pretty much need a microscope to identify one. He's thrown just one interception in nine games to go with 14 touchdowns and a 66.9 completion percentage.

Blemishes are not something Jostes has many of -- but his most impressive spotless record is one off the field: his GPA.

The junior has yet to get a B in high school and has earned a perfect 5.0 GPA.

In this WAND Sports spotlight, Jostes discusses his desire to help people once he graduates from college, his relationship with his father and coach Josh Jostes, plus why he speaks highly of the faculty at Maroa-Forsyth High School.
