SPOTLIGHT ATHLETE – Andrew Syester

Moving is nothing new to Trigg County senior Andrew Syester. Growing up in an army family saw the senior athlete move around. After settling at Fort Campbell, Syester got involved in the Falcon athletic program.

When his father retired from the army, that meant another move for Syester. This time, to Trigg County. This fall, Syester will play his third sport for the Wildcats — football, joining basketball and baseball.

He saw action in just nine basketball games after moving in after Christmas. He averaged two points and two rebounds. On the diamond, he started the outfield and drove in seven runs for the Wildcats. He was also 2-1 on the mound.

However, it’s the football field where Syester has turned heads over the summer. The 6-foot-4 receiver has become a favorite target for Trigg quarterback Cam Jordan and will be a key offensive target for the Wildcats this fall. Not bad for a kid who didn’t play football last year.
