Armin Basic - Hocevar Performance


Here is the story from the Renton Reporter:

The U.S. Army and the Seattle Seahawks presented Renton High’s Armin Basic with the High School Player of the Week Award Thursday.

Basic led the Indians’ defense in the 35-0 shutout of Highline on Oct. 31. Basic totaled 14 tackles, six of them were tackles for a loss.

Several members of the Army, Mark Holleman (representing the Seahawks) and Trina (a Sea Gal) presented Basic with a $250 check that will go toward the school’s ASB fund, two tickets to the Seahawks’ game Nov. 23 against the Washigton Redskins, a personalized jersey, special Army and Seahawks footballs, and more.

Basic will be recognized on the jumbotron Hawkvision during the fourth quarter of the Nov. 23 game in front of the Qwest Field crowd.

“We just pick kids who stand out,” Holleman said. “He’s a good kid on and off the field. He exemplifies a lot of the Army’s values, like leadership and accountability.”

Basic wasn’t so sure if it was good or bad news when he first found out.

“I got called down to the office and I thought it was for something I did wrong,” Basic said. “But this is great. It feels really good.”

The win over Highline sealed a trip to the preliminary round of the 3A state playoffs for Renton (5-3 overall, 5-2 league), where team will play against Timberline at South Sound Stadium Friday night.
