The Outstanding Senior Athlete Award is an award that is voted on by the High School coaches with highest consideration given to athletes who have participated in and completed two or more seasons of sport per year. The Senior Male Outstanding Athlete is Mr. Koby Cambpell. Coaches said Koby is a very dedicated and hard worker who pushed himself to be his best.  This young man has been a true competitor in every sport that he participated while attending Rose Hill High School. He truly understood that by working and motivating fellow teammates, the teams he played with could reach their full potential.  He was always willing to help teammates, which is what contributes to his leadership ability.  We are extremely proud of what he has done for Rose Hill High School and our sports programs. Koby is extremely deserving of this award and I know through his work ethic and attitude that his future is very bright!   Koby has always been a great competitor who is not only fearless and confident, but also respectful of his opponents during competition.  His competitiveness and respect for the game and desire to improve has earned him respect from his teammates, coaches, and opponents.
