D1 Knoxville Character Athlete of the Month
Ross Cannon is D1 Knoxville's July Character Athlete of the Month. Ross is a 17 year old football player at Seymour High School. He trains in D1's Prep Group (15-18 years old) with Coach Rob Longworth. July's Word of the Month was INTEGRITY. Ross Cannon has consistently displayed all of the attributes of a man with INTEGRITY. An example of Ross' INTEGRITY happened during a workout involving tire pulls. His group finished the drill, then he voluntarily helped the team who had not finished. Ross is always helping others in that way. He helps teammates rack weights and coaches pick up ladders and other training equipment, even when he hasn't been asked to do so. INTEGRITY, doing the right thing when no one is looking.
