Sacred Heart’s Ethan Buckner – American Family Insurance Athlete of the Month

Sacred Heart Athlete of the Month is basketball standout Ethan Buckner. Ethan starting playing basketball when he was six years old at the local YMCA. Now a senior, the 6-foot-4 forward has set big goals for himself and his team this season.

“We want to improve each game and contend for the league title and substate championship and of course State,” said Ethan.

Ethan and the rest of the Sacred Heart Knights are looking forward to the challenge of another tough schedule.

“My teammates have always been important to me because we are close on and off the court because we understand each others challenges and expectations,” Ethan said. “My favorite place to play most definitely is at our home games, it’s always a packed house and our fans and student section give us so much energy.” 

His future plans include college and the ROTC.

“My plans are to hopefully attend the Air Force ROTC at Kansas State University and major in political science,” Ethan said. “There are so many people that mean the world to me, definitely my parents and grandparents, but also other relatives, all my coaches, my friends and even their parents…they’ve always been there to support me.”
