Today’s Senior Spotlight is on #54, Defensive End, Conner Palk. He is the son of Russell and Michelle Palk and has a brother, Cooper, who also plays for the Rebels. Conner also plays Forward on the FHS Basketball team. He started playing football in 2007 for the Grassland Golden Eagles as a Lineman and has played since that time. His favorite player is JJ Watt and his favorite motivational saying is “Jowzer.” When asked what his best FHS Football memory is, Conner said “going in to play for the very first time as a Varsity Rebel as a sophomore at Shelbyville. I was extremely nervous and excited.” After graduation Conner would like to attend the University of Tennessee to study Business.
Here is what his parents want him to know: “We love you more than anything in the world. You have made us so proud of the young man you have become. We are your biggest fans. Remember we will be here for you and will always love you.”
We have loved watching Conner through the years and look forward to watching #54 not only on the football field but on the basketball court.
