Clay Center’s Brett Loader – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Visit Salina

By Matt Browning

Brett Loader of Clay Center was chosen as the Visit Salina Athlete of the Month for February. Loader has been one of the top-ranked wrestlers at 165 in Class 4A this season.

Last season, Loader took fourth at 170 at the 4A Tournament. That result is something Loader has thought about this season and has led to motivation to finish the job come February.

“A successful season for me would be a state title,” Loader said.

Loader has been pleased with his season up to this point, as he has multiple tournament victories, but he knows the season is still young and the big events are on the horizon.

“It’s (my season) has been good,” Loader said. “So far yes, I’m pleased, but it’s still early in the season.”

Even with all of the successes Loader has had last season and this season, there were still some areas he wanted to improve.

“I’d like to get better wrestling from my feet,” Loader said. “So far yes I have seen some progress in this area.”

While wrestling or football could be a part of his future, his post-high school plans are still undecided at this time.
