Allison Shults of Marion was chosen as the Eccentricity Mom of the Month. Shults has been a vital member of the Marion football program since 2017.
Shults had one son graduate from Marion in 2017 and her youngest is now a senior for the Warriors this season.
“I am honored that Coach Craft has nominated me for this recognition, but I do it for the boys,” Shults said. “I enjoy being able to be a ‘team mom.’ Being able to serve them dinner allows me to see the team grow together.”
Many of Shults’ responsibilities deal with the planning and organizing of game day meals.
“Each week I organize a meal for the team,” Shults said. “On the weeks we play away, it consists of sack lunches and the weeks we play at home, we do a team meal in the Thursday before the game.”
Shults works at the high school, so she is able to stay on top of the meals and making sure they are on time.
“Game days aren’t too hectic, just take more planning and organization to make sure nothing is forgotten and that everything gets to the bus on time,” Shults said. “Since I work at the school, I get up earlier on those days to make all the sandwiches and get all the coolers packed.”
