This week's 1590 WAKR Male Student Athlete of the Week is Van Wallbrown of Manchester High School.
Van tees it up for the Panthers' golf team during the fall, and shoots hoops for the basketball team throughout the winter. The basketball team had a nice run this year before falling to Canton Central Catholic in the sectional championship round of the tournament.
Van loves playing under head coach Gene Schinderwolf and his staff. Talking about his teammates, Van says “We are all a very tight group."
Though he is only a junior, Van has his sights set on college, preferably studying military science.
We here at 1590 WAKR wish him the best.
