Cross Country’s Ty Hilliard Named Athlete of the week.

Written by Sara Tilton – Buccaneer Scroll Staff Reporter

Our Athlete of the week this week is Ty Hilliard. Ty is a senior here at Allatoona and has been running cross country for the past four years. “Ty has done everything we have asked him to do for training, and he has stepped up to become a leader of this program as a senior,” says coach Patrick Parsons. Ty says he “usually leads the team most of the time. Whether it’s at practice or at meets, I try to keep everyone doing what they’re supposed to and help them get better.” After high school, he plans to go to college and get his computer science degree and work in a field he enjoys. Ty’s advice to younger players is “to just keep going. Keep pushing and only stop when you reach the finish line. Oh, and of course, don’t walk!”
