Congratulations to senior wrestler Eric Morris from Kingston, PA – GTM Sportswear’s Athlete of the Month for February 2013.
“Winning a national award… will serve as motivation as I continue on through my career,” said Morris. “I am blessed to be given the talents I have and I look forward to bettering myself in all areas of life throughout college and after.”
Each month, six finalists are selected by the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) and GTM Sportswear for strong athletic and academic performance. The finalists are presented via ballot to a group of high school sports writers, high school coaches, NHSCA staff and GTM Sportswear representatives to choose a winner.

He maintains a 3.4 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and has been honored as part of the Dean’s List Honor Roll at Wyoming Seminary.
