Danny Eisenman -- Athlete of the Week

Posted:
GRUNDY CENTER (KWWL) -

Grundy Center has excelled when it comes to the golfing world on both the boys and girls level, and this season is no different.

The boys are off to a 6-0 start looking to better their state runner-up trophy from a season ago, and heading that effort this season is senior Danny Eisenman.

"For the last two years averaging about 40 strokes." Head Coach Dennis Dirks says, "He's averaged 39 up to this point this year, but a very consistent golfer. He's turned into a leader now, the kids look up to him."

Becoming a leader after losing the states top golfer to graduation a season ago in Ryan Kiewiet, Eisenman has the Spartans moving in the right direction, but for him it is all about the team effort

"Not every single person has to pull out a great score. We have a lot of depth on the team where someone else can be medalist or have a top score on the team.

Eisenman has put in the work to make a run at the top spot this season, but he has also ensured the Spartan tradition for years to come.

"Danny's now showing the young kids what steps need to be made for them to be able to step in next year and take over his shoes," says Coach Dirks.
