Cole Wilcox is going to the College of Lake County in Illinois with a baseball scholarship.
Wilcox said he dreamed of playing college baseball since he was a little boy and thanked his parents (pictured with him) David and Nancy and also his siblings Sydney and Bennett for all of their support. He was also extremely thankful for his grandparents, who had given up countless weekends to watch him play.
Wilcox thanked his coaches who had supported him, to name a few; Coach Backman, Coach Prodell, Coach Taylor, and his basketball Coach Schmidt who had a huge impact on his athletic career. He thanked his teammates, teachers and friends for their encouragement to follow his dream and strive for his best on the field.
He said, “A special thank you to Shiocton’s School Liaison Officer Marvin Gramajo, for being a true inspiration to me. Thank you to all of you. I would not be celebrating this accomplishment without your support.”
