Two Zachary High School students have been recognized as October’s and November’s Athletes of the Month.
Representing the sport of football is senior Keenan Tate, 17, who plays outside linebacker and special teams on the Broncos’ squad.
Tate, an honor student, also is on the ZHS wrestling team.
“Keenan is having a great season. He has paid his dues as a program player and is now a starter on defense,” coach David Brewerton said. “He embodies what we want our program to stand for — young men and women with high moral character who compete at an exemplary level on the field as well as in the classroom.”
Tate, who maintains a 3.0 grade-point average, said he’d like to attend Southern University upon graduation to study nursing.
He is the son of Kenneth and Lillian Tate, of Zachary.
Representing swimming, is junior Collin Dupuy, 17, an honor student with a 3.9 GPA.
Dupuy competed in two individual events at the state swim meet recently and was part of the LHSAA swim meet in Sulphur Nov. 21.
He competed in the 200-yard individual medley, 100-yard freestyle, 200-yard medley relay and 200-yard freestyle relay.
“Collin has really worked hard this year, and it’s paying off for him right now,” coach Lisa McGehee said. “He is a great swimmer and an even better person. He is a leader both in and out of the pool, and I’m honored to be his coach.”
Dupuy said he’ll be attending Louisiana Tech in Ruston and studying biology.
He is the son of Karl Dupuy, of Zachary, and Melissa Buckles, of Denham Springs.
