Congratulations to Olivia Goodson, our Student-Athlete of the Week! Olivia is a senior at Northmor High School in Galion, Ohio, and is on the Cross Country, Bowling and Track & Field teams. Olivia is active in her school and community, by serving as a member of the Northmor High School Lead Team and through volunteer projects at the Ronald McDonald House, Camp Mary Orton, Jobs for Ohio Graduates and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Her other interests include visiting aquariums and working with kids. 

Olivia is committed to serving as a positive role model for young readers through The 2nd & 7 Foundation. While serving as a student-athlete volunteer, she enjoys watching young readers' expressions while she reads Hog Mollies stories. Olivia shares, "The thing about this foundation that I love most is the kids have a role model to look up to. Also, they get a book of their very own."

We are so proud to have Olivia in our 2nd & 7 huddle and wish her the best during her senior year at Northmor High School!
