The South Tama County Middle School Student-Athlete Spotlight is on Tanner Walz.  Tanner is an 8th grader at STC.  He is a “WOW” (Wrestler of the Week) for the Trojan wrestling team.

Tanner participates in football as a runningback & linebacker, track and field as a sprinter and discus thrower, and baseball as a 3rd baseman in addition to his time that he spends on the mat.  In school, Tanner has proved to be a great student as well, receiving silver and bronze academic awards.

“Tanner has stepped up and become a leader in the practice room.  He has an understanding of the team concept and pushes his teammates to do their best each and every day. With his drive and willingness, he will be successful and be a good leader for others to follow.” Commented Coach Chyma.

Tanner has ran his season record to 11-2. He enjoys spending time our doors and he likes to hunt in his free time.

Tanner Walz is the son of Tim and Candi Walz of rural Tama.
