As a four-sport star, senior Nick Gerber is constantly in the
spotlight in the small west Texas community of Levelland. Gerber
was a 1st team all-district selection in both football and basketball
last season, was a member of the 4A Region 1 All-Region
basketball team and was the football Offensive MVP in District
1-4A. The accolades on the field are impressive, and Gerber has
been lights out on the football field this fall while throwing for 3374
yards and 47 touchdowns through just eight games.
However, Gerber’s impact on the Levelland community
extends far past his accolades on the field. He has received awards
from the school for both English and Physics, has a 97.2 GPA
and is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National
Honor Society and Life Teen at church. With NHS, Gerber helps
out with Field Day for special needs students every year.
“That is a great experience,” Gerber said. “You learn that it’s
more than just sports – being able to help kids and play with them,
it’s a humbling experience.”
Gerber credited the community of Levelland for being very
tight-knit, and said the support he and the rest of the athletes
receive is second to none.
“It’s awesome,” Gerber said. “It’s a good community here that
really backs us, and I’m really proud to be a part of it.”
Gerber has not decided on a college for next year and is
waiting out the football recruiting process, but plans to major in
Senior Brooke Schreiber is another four-sport standout
athlete, and competes in volleyball, basketball, softball and track
for Windthorst high school. Despite receiving accolades across
the board – including 1st team all-district awards in volleyball,
basketball and softball, All-State honorable mention volleyball,
and Defensive MVP in basketball – the team oriented senior
pointed towards volleyball as her favorite sport.
“I like that it is such a team effort,” Schreiber said. “You have
to rely on each other to be successful.”
That team first mindset has paid off across the board for
Schreiber, as she has been key in several deep playoff runs for the
Trojans. Last season, the softball reached the state championship,
the basketball team was a state semi-finalist and the volleyball
team was the state runner up.
Off the field, Schreiber is the president of the National
Honor Society, the senior class vice president, and a member of
the youth leadership team at her church. Schreiber is a part of a
group called “Bravo”, and volunteers her time at various events
including the Mircale League, YMCA food drives and PALS.
“I like giving my time helping other people,” Schreiber said.
“Just helping others and seeing other people succeed is very
Schreiber wants to go into nursing after graduating from
Windthorst, and while she is looking at Midwestern State
University, she has not decided on a college at this time.
