Loco Rio Player of the Week (January 17-23)

BUCKThe Loco Rio Restaurant names one Heard County Brave each week as the Player of the Week.

The Loco Rio Player of the Week for January 17-23 is Brave Special Olympic Athlete Mr. Christopher Dunson.

Christopher, better known as “Buck” won first place in his division at the recent basketball skills competition held on January 17 scoring 14 points in perimeter shooting, 21 points in rebounding  and 26 points in the dribbling obstacle course. He had a total of 61 points for the day.

Also, Buck led the Special Olympics athletes in stretches during warm-ups before the competition started.

According to local Special Olympics coordinator, Wylene Spearman, Buck is a team player who motivates and encourages others. “Everybody knows Buck, said Spearman. “If you don’t, you are missing a treat. This year, he is a senior and will graduate in May. He is an enthusiastic athlete who is well-known at Heard High and will be missed greatly next year.”

Congratulations to Christopher “Buck” Dunson on being named the Player of the Week! He will be invited to a very special celebration at Loco Rio later in the school year.
