Wilbert brings hype

West Sioux senior Austin Wilbert is several of his teammates favorite player because of the unselfishness he has as an athlete.

HAWARDEN—West Sioux basketball seniors took time to answer a few questions about their favorite things and memories this far on the season. Next up is Austin Wilbert.

West Sioux senior Austin Wilbert says what makes this team stand out from all other teams is most of the guys on the team are friends so it is like playing hoops out in the backyard with your buddies. 

“This year has been a lot easier because my teammates are my friends,” Wilbert said. “I bring a lot of hype to the team, I know I don’t play that much but I am always there to support my friends, we have been playing sports togther for a long time, it’s been great.”

My favorite things, Austin Wilbert

Austin Wilbert is the senior on the team that doesn't necessarily get to play as much as he would like, but no one does the starting line up more proud than him. Fellow teammates claim he is the most "unselfish" teammate. That is a characteristic everyone should teach their children.
