Salina Central’s Mason Clark – Athlete Spotlight Presented By American Family Insurance, Jeff Wells

By Hayden Swope

Mason Clark, a football athlete at Salina Central, was chosen as the American Family Insurance Athlete of the Month for October. 

“It means a lot to me truly,” Clark said. “To be in Vype Magazine means I am doing something right and those around me are seeing what I am doing right.”

Clark spent the offseason learning how to be a leader and spending his time on the field with his teammates. 

“Preparing for the season I really just worked with all the under class men,” Clark said. “I prepared them for Friday nights since they would be right there with me.”

While long term goals were in the back of his mind, Clark’s biggest goal this year was to always continue to improve week after week to show what he could do. 

“The only goal I have for the season is to do better this week then last week and so on and so forth,” Clark said.

Involved in numerous sports and clubs up at the high school, Clark hopes to take all of the memories with him after graduation. 

“I throw in track and I am a big brother for big brothers and sisters,” Clark said. “I am Vice President of the Chess Club, a disc golf club member, a National Honor Society and relay for life member, and a Student Council member.”

Clark aspires to attend college after high school, and continue his academic career.

“My plans for college are to attend Kansas State University through their Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program and study architecture,” Clark said.
