Monticello High School senior Hunter Dickerson is this week's choice for Burger King Student Athlete of the Week.
Dickerson played cornerback for the Monticello football team helped lead the Mustangs to a 6-4 record and an appearance in the Region II playoffs. He was one of the few seniors on the team and helped mentor the younger players on defense as well.
While he doesn't play a winter sport, Dickerson is spending a lot of time in the weight room. He hopes that his winter workouts will help him become a better pole vaulter when spring track and field rolls around.
Dickerson is a standout student at MHS as well. He carries a 4.35 weighted GPA, and he's been on the honor roll every marking period of his high school career. He is also a member of three different honor societies: National, Math and English.
Dickerson hopes to attend the University of Pittsburgh in the fall.
