WNCT Student Athlete of the Week

Mattamuskeet Early College High School Student Athlete Honored by WNCT

Stephon is the quiet leader of this team. Mattamuskeet is coming off its first win in over three years after a 43-8 win over Cape Hatteras. The team thrives off of Stephon, He had a total 254 yards with two touchdown catches and 1 kickoff return for a touchdown. Stephon has a contagious smile on his face at all times. He leads by example not words, the team feeds off his exploits on the field and in the classroom. He flashes a smile to not only students but to teachers as well each and every day. His attitude reminds you why we teach and coach these kids. Stephon is the definition of a student athlete!
