SPARTA, MICH. - This week's Meijer Scholar Athlete is junior Grant Kelley of Sparta.
The three sport athlete is currently the starting quarterback for the Spartans and is carrying a 4.0 GPA through high school so far.
Kelley hasn't put too much thought into colleges yet but hopes his skills at quarterback, shortstop or point guard will help him play at the next level.
His grades will certainly make that easier and for that he thanks the lessons of sports and his support staff.
"Parents. I give a lot of credit to but generally it's student-athlete," says Kelley, "put school before sports most of the time. I learned dedication, work hard that plays a big role in school to get good grades too."
