Little Giant Senior A Major Leader In Canton

Extra Effort: Clint Wells

CANTON, Ill. - Clint Wells really hasn't stopped moving since he walked into Canton High School four years ago.

"From the start, people said 'Get involoved, get involved.' I can tell people getting
involved is the best thing you can do," said Wells. "You make friends and a lot of memories."

Along with playing football and baseball, the Canton High School senior has been on student council and is a National Honor Society Member. He's also been a counselor at a leadership camp
for junior highers.

"I would help kids gain leadership skills and lear how to be role models in their schools," said Wells.

He has been the starting quarterback of the footbal team for two years.

"He's my practicum in the first hour of the day," said Canton football coach Cody Myers. "He does a great job for me, asking if he can help me out, help me set up games, even teach the class."

Wells is the guy at school that people seek when they want to get something done.

"Earlier coach sayd he needs help for 'Taste of Canton.' He says he needs me to recruit some guys
to tear down after it's over," Wells recalled. "I say 'Sure coach.' and get on it."

He's busy from the minute he walks into school. Now he's busy helping Canton chase down a playoff spot.
