Wilson named Buckeye Charters Athlete of Distinction for March
Dayton, OH – The Athletic Department is pleased to announce that Freshman Josh Wilson (FR/RHP – Cedarville H.S.) received the Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction Award for the month of March.
Each month the Athletic Department in conjunction with Buckeye Charters, will select a Student-Athlete that has been a leader in all three categories; Community Service, Classroom and Competition – also known as the 3 C’s.
This month we would like to honor Red Shirt Freshman Josh Wilson of the baseball team. Wilson has not only been active with the team this past fall in the community but he continues to lead the way in the Classroom and on the court.
Josh joined the rest of his teammates just after returning from the holiday break to volunteer for the Dr. Martin Luther King march and rally in January. Active all year, the baseball team accumulated over 400 hours of community service heading into another championship season.
Wilson finished the fall semester with a perfect 4.00 GPA and was named to the All-Conference Academic team this fall and is well on his way to completing the spring semester with back to back 4.00 semesters. Last year he earned the NJCAA 3rd Team All-Academic award for being above 3.6 GPA for the year even though he had a season ending injury that kept him off the diamond but not out of the classroom.
So far this season he was named the OCCAC Pitcher of the Week on March 19th and is on pace to do something only a handful of athletes ever get to experience, winning back to back conference college championships. He will graduate this spring and has already committed to continuing his educational and playing career at the University of Dayton.
Special thanks go out to Buckeye Charters for this award that honors those student-athletes that are great in the three C’s. Buckeye Charters have been providing quality and reliable transportation for student-athletes around the region as well as many other groups for over 22 years. They have proven over the many years of partnership with the athletic department that they also value the commitment to high standards, and this is why we are pleased to name this monthly award: The Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction
