Scholar Athlete of the Week: Northside’s Andy Callahan
NORTHSIDE SENIOR GOLFER ANDY CALLAHAN SPENDS TIME ON THE LINKS AND VOLUNTEERING IN HIS COMMUNITY
Everybody says there’s not enough time in a day, but Andy Callahan could use a few extra hours. He has a a 4.3 GPA, while being dual enrolled at Northside high school and Columbus State University.
“Definitely takes some free time sacrifice. We practice out here from 3:30 to 5:30, usually I stay until 6:30ish, then homework from there on out so free time is few and far between,” Said Northside Senior golfer, Andy Callahan.
When Andy does have free time he volunteers at hospitals. He’s also looking to study medicine in college and says golf has helped him become well rounded.
“Biggest part of golf is mentally. So just being mentally tough and mentally focused, definitely helps out in the classroom when it comes to anything. Studying, taking tests, paying attention, anything,” Said Callahan.
Golf is certainly not an easy game, but without a doubt it s a sport.
“Golf is definitely a sport,” says Callahan. “Ever since Tiger Woods started playing every college team works out. Definitely real athletes.”
On the golf course, Andy is looking to help lead his team to a win over a long standing rival.
“Our goal this year is to beat Columbus, that’s our rival,” says Callahan. “We have three good seniors this year, me included and we’re hoping we can make a run at them.”
Congratulations to Andy Callahan WLTZ’s Scholar Athlete of the Week.
