This week’s student of the week is James Lockard.  James was nominated by Coach Stein because James has spent the last three years being the manager for both the football and basketball teams. He has come to every single practice and game over that time, giving up hundreds of hours to perform countless tasks to help both programs. His unselfishness, and willingness to help others, is the reason that he deserves the student of the week honor. As this week’s Student of the Week, James will receive a coupon for one free admission ticket to an Oakdale High School event.  Way to go James!
