Enid’s Ethan Armstrong - Athlete Spotlight Presented By Curttright Honda
Ethan Armstrong is a senior this year at Enid High School where he is a member of the varsity golf team. Armstrong has competed in golf since his middle school years.
“I am a senior and I played football until my junior year and I have played golf all throughout middle school and high school,” said Armstrong. “What I love most about my team is that we are all competitive and we all actually care about getting better. I have known my teammates, past and present, for years so we all have had a great bond since before we played on the same team. We all will get together and play outside of practice days as much as we can because we all like to hang out anyways.”
Not just an athlete, Armstrong has been involved with several groups at school including a club that services the community of Enid. “I have been in the platinum-E community service club since my freshman year. I also was just elected to be on the May Fete court right before school was canceled,” said Armstrong.
In the classroom Armstrong has enjoyed the opportunity to learn under some outstanding educators. “My favorite subject is English. It has always been a subject that I understand very well and one that I can easily work through. My favorite teacher is my math teacher from sophomore year, Mrs. Ransom. She was always the fun teacher, she was really easy to get along with, and she is very good at what she does,” said Armstrong.
Up next for the graduating senior may include playing golf for a smaller university of attending classes at Oklahoma State University. But for now he has found a way to kill some time with family. “With my extra time, I have been working with my uncle at Reddick Remodeling. During that time we have worked on his house and at a few jobs around the Enid area,” said Armstrong.
The senior has a message for his fellow graduates. “To all of my classmates, it has been a great four years. Thank you for the huge amount of support that you all have given me up to even voting for me to be in this magazine. To my family, thank you for always being there for me and believing in me even when times got tough. I owe it to my brothers, my dad, and my grandpa Joe for teaching me this game and I hope that one day I can pay you back.”
