Ellsworth’s Avery Haxton – American Family Athlete Profile

By Matt Browning

Avery Haxton of Ellsworth was chosen as the American Family Insurance Athlete of the Month for May. Haxton is a three-sport athlete for the Bearcats, participating in football, basketball and golf.

Haxton was a first team all-league offensive lineman in football, a first team all-league forward in basketball and missed qualifying for the state golf tournament in 2019 by one stroke.

He recorded 25 unassisted tackles, three fumble recoveries and three sacks in football, averaged 17 points and nine rebounds in basketball and has an average score in the upper 80s in golf.

“I make time to practice other sports while I am in season for one sport,” Haxton said. “I also work on small drills that can help me become a better athlete and player in all three sports.”

Having to balance sports, school and life has become normal for Haxton, since he has been living this lifestyle since he was a kid.

“I have always been very involved in sports throughout the year from when I was a kid,” Haxton said. “Having that really prepared me to be able to stay up with my schoolwork and balance all three sports.”

Haxton is also involved in National Honors Society and the Letterman’s Club at Ellsworth. Next year he is going to play basketball at Tabor and wants to study secondary education.
