For high school senior Shane Wynn, October 22nd, 2010 was a special day. A Friday, so it must be game day right? Yes, but this wasnt just any regular game. For Wynn, along with a handful of other seniors, was the last Homecoming as high school athletes. Shane and the other seniors of Glenville High School celebrated another victory running over John Hay High School 40-0.
Unlike many high school players and teams, there was not a victory dance, or victory speech. No excitement coming from anywhere except the stands. This football team is poised to make another long run into the Ohio State Playoffs, that kickoff in 2 weeks. The focus of the team is a State Title and nothing else will do.
Shane Wynn is a very unique athlete, WR and return man on the football field, point and shooting guard on the basketball team, and a 4.3 forty yard dasher on the track. But Wynn is also an exceptional student and leader. When I first met Shane Wynn, he was a young man poised to seize every opportunity of success. Like other Juniors he had his fun, but when it came down to business, thats what he was all about. I gained a level of respect for Wynn within the first few seconds. He spoke with such an integrity, letting you know that he was not just another run of the muck athlete; but that he was someone using his athletic ability to better himself and those around him.
As the season continues to roll along, questions will soon begin to rise. Just how far can this young man go? What will be his next step in the growth of knowledge athletically and intellectually and the college level. Will he be the next Percy Harvin? Or will he continue to write his own path, and create his own destiny.
Shane Wynn is a special person, not just athletically, but personally. He is a good friend, and a character person that needs to be in your life. If you havent had the opportunity to sit down with Shane Wynn, you are missing out on a treat.
The Glenville Tarblooders, are led by a bunch of teammates and not individuals. Shane Wynn is one of those teammates. The playoffs start soon, jump on the Tarblooder Nation band wagon, and enjoy the ride.
