McPherson’s, Sam Becker – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Hellas Construction

By Matt Browning

Sam Becker of McPherson football understands how important quality facilities are to the success of a program. Hellas Construction recently completed a project at McPherson High School’s football stadium.

“It has been a long process working together with community members, the school board, school administration, coaches, teachers and students to build an on-site facility,” Becker said. “We are now lucky to have a place for multiple sports to either practice or play.  It can be used for multiple school activities that the grass field didn’t provide
us with.”

The Bullpups are in the middle of yet another successful season and Becker thinks the new facilities will only get more kids excited to
play football.

“I think the upgrade in the facilities will continue to promote pride in our school and in our community which will strengthen the culture that has already been made,” Becker said.

Speaking of the culture, Becker said that was the building block initially with all of McPherson’s success. The Bullpups are 64-14 over the past seven seasons.

“Our team culture is the major part in the continued success we have had,” Becker said. “The coaches and players trust in each other and trust the process; this has led to keeping that winning culture.”
