McDonald’s “Student-Athlete of the Week”


April 23rd - April 29th

Jackson Goodmiller of Rock Creek High School


The cool temperatures this spring haven’t bothered the Rock Creek baseball team as they’re off to a dominant 7-3 start. The Mustangs’ catalyst thus far is junior third baseman Jackson Goodmiller, who’s a stat sheet stuffer. Goodmiller has pounded out 23 hits and boasts a .657 batting average with eight doubles, 18 RBI’s and 20 runs scored. Once Goodmiller gets on base, he’s been perfect by stealing 11 out of 11 bags at the halfway mark of the regular season. During this past Monday afternoon’s doubleheader sweep of St. Mary’s, Goodmiller piled up five hits and knocked in three runs, helping Rock Creek outscore the Bears 25-5. In two seasons at the varsity level, he is hitting .486 with 54 hits in 111 at bats. Jackson is a three-sport athlete in football, basketball and baseball. He also carries that success into the classroom with a 3.6 GPA. Congratulations to Jackson Goodmiller of Rock Creek High School, the McDonald’s / KMAN “Student Athlete of the Week!”
