Loudoun County, Va. – In an effort to better recognize student-athletes who positively affect high school sports in Loudoun County, Power Train and LoCoSports have teamed up to announce John Champe High School senior Dalton Young as the Power Train and LoCoSports Teammate of the Month for January 2019.
Young is one of the Knights’ co-captains and is a leader on and off the court. In the classroom, Young maintains over a 4.0 GPA, and on the court, Young has shown tremendous selflessness this season.
“Dalton has exceptional hustle, effort and heart,” John Champe head coach Bill Maher said. “He has taken 29 charges this season, breaking the previous team record by more than double. Dalton is always willing to sacrifice his time for the good of the team.”
The John Champe basketball team follows the motto, “team first, team last,” and Young lives up to those words every day. He’s often the first person at practice and the last one to leave, and he’s always willing to mentor younger players.
“Dalton’s impact on the team is his willingness and dedication to live up to our motto,” Maher said. “His work ethic, willingness to compete and love of the game is contagious. His fellow teammates know that to Dalton the team is stronger than any one player.”
The Power Train and LoCoSports Teammate of the Month is selected from nominations based on student-athletes having a great team-first mentality, hustle, work ethic, attitude and heart.
All athletes and teammates of the month are invited to Power Train for a free month of training.
