Every month the administration at Milford Senior High School will be spotlighting the success of one senior student. Students will be nominated for their commitment to their education, their involvement in after school activities, and the leadership that they bring to everything they do.
September’s Senior Spotlight is Greggory Clark.
Clark, an attendee of Milford Senior High School’s Summer SWEAT Program, is leading his school in the classroom, through peer mentoring, and on the football field. Clark said his primary focus at Milford Senior High School is to be the best student-athlete that he can be. Clark is focused on completing his Agriculture Structures pathway at Milford and leading his team to success in football this season.
Clark, a now left tackle in his senior year, was an all-conference guard his junior year and is looking to be all-conference and all-state this year at tackle. To start the momentum this season, Clark was named one of the captains on the football team. “Clark is always around to make sure his teammates are doing the right things and pushing themselves,” said Head Football Coach Shawn Strickland. Strickland went on to say, “Greg is committed to what he does. I saw him working hard in the weight room and in camp this summer and he looks strong for the season.”
This football season, Clark has his sights on winning the Battle of the Bell and winning games in the State Tournament. After football, Clark will continue to train for football so he can go on to play in college as well as go out for his last season of baseball as a senior.
When asked about his favorite Teacher or Coach at the high school, Clark said, “Coach Strickland is my favorite coach. He is my favorite coach because he pushes me to become the best I can be and never lets me settle.”
Senior Greggory Clark’s determination and success at the high school can be summarized and explained by his favorite quote which is, “Why be good if you could be great.” Through that quote, he challenges himself and those around him to be the best they can be. We all wish Greggory Clark much success in his senior year.
