Senior Standout 10/26: Denton-Geyser-Stanford's Conner Bokma

Posted: Updated:

A typical student-athlete already has a busy schedule, which is why it's that much more impressive that Conner Bokma has built quite the resume.

He's on pace to be valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA, he's the president of the Stanford High Student Council, president of the Stanford BPA of America, president of his senior class, he's involved in Eagle Scout, FFA, 4-H and has logged hundreds of hours of community service. Anyone that's known Conner long enough will tell you that's only the tip of the Iceberg.

"I've known him since Kindergarten," says fellow senior Kendall Carpenter. "He's just a really cool guy to be around. He's really intelligent and a really good team player and just focused on the team winning."

"He's been a great leader for us. He's a hard worker on and off the field," says Bearcats head coach Scott Sparks. "And in the classroom he's always been a great student and involved in a number of different activities. I think he's just a kid that you hope your kids grow up to be like. "

Conner has grown up to be a presence for the Bearcats on the gridiron. He's been a team captain since he was a sophomore, a two-time all-state selection, and helped the Bearcats reach the state title game two years ago and the semi-final last year. The only stat that matters to him, is how many wins the team can get.

"It's all about the team," says Bokma. "We just care about winning and we don't care about individual stuff. So whatever I gotta do to help this team win, that's what I'm going to do."

The ultimate win would be in the state title game. And after coming close the last two years, Conner is hoping to go out on top in his senior year.

"Oh that would be great. Growing up when we were younger, you see those two state championships in 2010 and 2011. You kinda watch those guys play and you just want to be out there one day. We came short two years ago and we've been trying to get back there ever since. So that would be huge."

Hopefully a trophy will just be one more item to add to the resume.
