William Monroe High School senior Ben Sizemore is this week's choice for Burger King Student Athlete of the Week.
Sizemore recently completed a stellar senior campaign as a member of the Dragons' wrestling team. Sizemore finished the season with an overall record of 28-10 and was undefeated in the Jefferson District during the regular season as a heavyweight. He also was a member of the varsity football team in the fall and received all-district honors as a defensive end.
Sizemore is unique in that his wrestling coach is also his father, Mike. He says having his Dad as his coach hasn't always been easy because he has given him a lot of tough love on the mat.
Sizemore is also having a stellar academic year at WMHS. He has a weighted GPA of 3.75 and ranks 31st out of 185 members of his senior class. He is taking all honors courses as well.
Sizemore plans on attending either Ohio State University or James Madison University in the fall.
