Congratulations to our Hardware Hank “Nuts & Bolts” Athletes of the Week: Ethan Kern, senior, Verndale football and Josh Brozek, senior, Rockford football.
Name: Ethan Kern
Athletic Director: Michael Mahlen, 218-445-5184, firstname.lastname@example.org
Address: 411 SW Brown Street, Verndale, MN, 56481
Nominated by: Susan Walsvik
Information: Ethan is nearly the heart and soul of the Verndale football team. At 5'4" and under 150lbs, what he lacks for in size he makes up for with enthusiasm and true grit. The last 3 games he has played with a painful injury (bruised ribs). In one of the games he received a 'low blow' from an opposing player (after the play had ended). After sitting out one or two plays, he went back in, and in spite of the pain he must have been experiencing, ran another incredible touch down play. He is respected and admired in the school and loved by his family--all 11 of them!
