Mooreland's Conner Scartbough - Character Counts Presented by Great Plains Bank Woodward
Mooreland High School’s Conner Scarborough has been described as a good leader and someone who is willing to help the younger players on the football team. The running back and cornerback has spent countless hours preparing and training to become the best player he can be for his team and teammates.
“My favorite thing about being a part of Mooreland High School and the Mooreland community is how close knit we are as a whole. Everyone knows each other and everyone is supportive of each other,” said Scarborough. “Being a leader to me means being an example to the younger kids and being the person that will take the extra step to help your peers better themselves.”
Scarborough’s involvement at school does not end on the football field. He is also a member of the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and he is Vice President of the Student Council. Away from school Scarborough also helps at his church.
“I feel like the most important part of being a student-athlete is being able to balance school and sports. If you can’t keep your grades up, you can’t play,” said Scarborough.
Academics combined with athletics will afford Scarborough an opportunity to pursue a higher education while continuing to play the sport she loves.
“After I graduate, I hope to attend college on a sports scholarship and I would like to study something in the science field or the medical field,” said Scarborough.
Scarborough said her father has taught her many life lessons that she will carry with her into college and life.
“A big role model in my life has been my dad. He has always been there for me and supports me in everything I do. I can’t think him enough for the life lessons he has taught me,” said Scarborough.
