The 1590 WAKR Male Student Athlete of the week is Michael Connalley from Buchtel High School.
Michael is a two-sport athlete in his junior year and Buchtel, and competes not only in football, but basketball as well. Michael has found a nice balance between sports and being a great student
Because Michael is only in his junior year, his college options are still wide open. He said his mother really pushes and motivates him to excel in the classroom. Being a teacher herself, she knows the importance of a good education, and has instilled that into Michael at an early age. His mother continues to reinforce the importance of education to this day.
During his time at Buchtel, Michael has put together a list of accomplishments that include being named first-team all-city and second-team all-district.
We at WAKR look forward to seeing what Michael can do in his senior year and on into college.
