This week, our 1590 WAKR Male Student Athlete of the Week is Matt Waskey, a junior bowler from East CLC.
Matt says it was family that got him into the sport of bowling and gave him the foundation to enjoy the sport in high school.
“My father got me into it at a young age,” Waskey said. “I started bowling at the elementary school level and it was a fun program to get into.”
A captain on the bowling team,Matt says he enjoys working with his coaches and teammates day in and day out, saying the team is like a family.
Waskey is a member of the 3.0 club and a student ambassador at East. In addition to his love of bowling, Matt also enjoys music and is a member of both the Jazz Band and Concert Band.
Matt plays the saxophone, and plans on studying music at either the University of Akron, Kent State University or The Ohio State University upon graduation in 2019.
We here at 1590 WAKR wish Matt the very best in all of his future endeavors.
