Athlete of the Week: Scott McCormick | News
First Presbyterian Day School takes on Aquinas in their last game of the regular season.
Thursday night the Macon Exchange Club recognized Scott McCormick as their" Youth of the Month" from October.
The senior is relatively perfect in the classroom and a leader on the field.
For all of his work, he has also earned out Athlete of the Week honors.
Barbara Henley teaches Chemistry, and she says senior Scott McCormick has found the formula for success.
"He is just great at listening. He can listen to what I say, she said with a broad smile. I don't think he writes down a thing sometimes then he can repeat everything I say back to me."
McCormick who has engineered a perfect 4.0 in the classroom says he does have some biological talents, but he also believes in working hard.
"I have a lot to be thankful for," McCormick said, "I have a lot of abilities God has given me and I'm thankful for those and I do study hard I try to use them as best as I can."
He brings that work ethic to the football field.
McCormick plays both sides of the ball, but he has some impressive stats as a wide receiver.
He averages 22 yds a reception. He's put six touchdowns on the board, and one night he reeled off an 84 yard play.
But he's humble about the team, who, this season, has a 6-3 record.
"Doing the best we can. We're practicing hard," McCormick said, "And obviously I'm doing my best to be a leader and to help the other guys to work as hard as they can too. "
Back in the classroom, Mrs. Henley has big plans for her standout, who is in the top ten percent of his class.
"I don't know what he's going to do in life but he's going to have to do something with science because he's really quite good at Chemistry," Henley said.
"Well I like the medical field a lot and I think it would be cool to be a doctor or a surgeon or something like that," McCormick said.
"There is actually a student I think in this class that told one of the teachers that Scott McCormick was the total package and I think that was a good way to describe him," Henley added.
