Seth Dennis is an impressive athlete at Morrison High School. He is a member of the varsity basketball and football team and has been playing basketball since middle school and football since second grade.
“What I enjoy the most about the sports is the competition, the people you meet, and the ability to improve every practice,” Dennis said.
Playing both basketball and football has allowed Dennis to improve both on and off the court and field as both a person and a player, and he is thankful that both sports have allowed him to grow in his competitive spirit.
Dennis has also formed meaningful relationships with the athletic community which he will carry with him and cherish past high school sports.
What interested Dennis in basketball and football in the first place was the success and tradition that he had noticed in the Morrison programs, and he “wanted to be a part of that tradition.”
Dennis is a leader. As an older member of the team and the athletic community, he steps up to assume a leadership role. He leads by “helping younger players with their understanding of the sports,” while also demonstrating leadership by his actions and through example.
Dennis values using sports to grow character. When asked what his biggest lesson that he has taken away from being involved in sports, he said that basketball and football have “taught [him] that there will be ups and downs, and how you handle the lows will show your true character.”
Sports for Dennis are more than just a game. Participating in athletics provides him with an opportunity to grow in his athletic abilities while also learning and growing from a mental standpoint.
To anyone who is looking to pursue basketball or football, Seth offered up some advice.
“Basketball and football are we-over-me sports,” he said. “You must be prepared to be selfless, be a coachable athlete and you must be able to adjust on the fly.”
