Eads thrower is final Athlete of the Week

The final Loaf ‘N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week for the 2012-13 school year is Daniel Weirich of Eads High School.

Eads High School may only have 66 students, but this kid would pretty much be the best track and field athlete at any school, regardless of size. He just won his third straight state title in the 2A shut put and discus, making six championships in all. He currently holds the 2A state record, and at one point, his shot put throw was the fourth longest in the country.

"It's a passion that I have and I'm not just doing it because its fun," said Daniel. "I'm doing it because I love it. I just need to work that much harder. It's great feeling and a great experience also."

Daniel has a scholarship to throw for the Colorado State Rams next season.
