Wille Argo: I think we got a good ‘un

Willie Argo (Assumption Davenport, IA) has just been named Male High School Athlete of the Year by the second major Iowa paper.  Argo is a member of the University of Illinois baseball recruiting class of 2008. 

The Des Moines Register agreed with the Quad City Times (yay, my newspaper when I was a kid) by bestowing the honor last week. 

There’s a good reason for this award.  Yes, he plays baseball where he led the 2A Assumption team to a second straight title.  But that’s not all.  Oh no. 

He was running back for the football team where he rushed for 1,533 yards and broke the Mississippi Athletic conference record for TDs (39) and points (234). 

He was also a member of the wrestling team.  As a grappler, he had a 43-1 record came in third in state.  Argo ALSO qualified for the state track and field meet in four events. 

This was all in addition to his exploits on the diamond.  By the way, he was captain of his baseball team, too. 

Assumption… don’t assume anything with this guy.
