Athlete of the Day: Jackson Kolp

It’s time to celebrate our Athlete of The Day!

Jackson Kolp, son of Sports Mama, Beth Kolp, is our Athlete of the Day.

 

Tell us about Jackson’s achievement:

Jackson is not big into sports, but we encouraged him to find something to stay active.  After trying multiple things, he settled on baseball. He has gone from not wanting to play sports, to be a leader on his team. This is his third season of baseball and he has made the All-Star team.

He was asked to be a pitcher and he was really hesitant because he didn’t want all eyes on him and the pressure to perform. He has really picked up the motions and has become a force to be reckoned with.

 

 

Tell us about a character trait Jackson has that you just adore:

I admire his perseverance and willingness to try new things. If he hadn’t given pitching a chance, he might not have found a position that he loves.

 

 

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know:

That he can do anything that he puts his mind, heart, and soul into. Hard work, dedication, and consistency will take him far.

 

Congratulations, Jackson!
